ABOUT: A Fabolous Way Foundation will kick off their First Annual 3 Kings Coat Drive this November, founded by Def Jam Recording Artist Fabolous. The 3 New York Kings, FABOLOUS, New York Yankees’ ROBINSON CANO and New York Giants’ AHMAD BRADSHAW will come together to help bring awareness and give back to the city of New York in conjunction with New York Cares, Dr. Jays and HOT 97. With today’s economy, job losses and financial struggles, providing coats to New Yorkers in need is so simple yet so vital. We will be accepting donations of new or gently used winter coats, hats and scarves in all sizes at ALL Dr. Jay’s retail locations throughout the New York City and New Jersey area from November 1st to December 1st. All the coats and winter gear will be gathered and donated to New York Cares, which collects nearly 70,000 winter coats each December and distributes them to thousands of men, women and children who would otherwise be cold. Please join us as we come together to bring warmth to our city and aim to collect 100,000 coats this winter.
