Whitney Young Health Hosts Coat Drive for Patients



With the colder weather already here, not everyone has a coat to keep them warm. Many of Whitney Young Health's patients are immigrants and refugees from warmer climate countries, thus is their first winter for most of them. WYH decided to share the warmth on #GivingTuesday and hosted a Coat Drive at their 3 health centers in Albany, Troy and Watervliet as well as their Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Treatment Center in Albany.

Over 250 coats were collected and given out to their patients, adults and children alike. Whitney Young Health also received donations from both AOW Associates and MVP Healthcare who donated brand new coats for their patients. Regal Dry Cleaners on Central Avenue in Albany generously donated their services to clean all the coats before given out.
