Mets to hold coat drive Wednesday
The Mets will hold their fifth annual Holiday Coat Drive this Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Citi Field.
Fans donating one or more coats will receive a voucher redeemable for a pair of tickets to a select Mets game in April 2012, as well as a coupon for 15 percent off regularly priced merchandise at the Mets Team Store on Wednesday only. Season-ticket holders who donate coats will receive 20 percent off regularly priced items upon showing their season-ticket ID card.
The Mets will collect coats at Citi Field’s Seaver VIP entrance. Fans may use parking Lot B [Entrance 8] on the north side of the ballpark off Shea Road.
The drive is in conjunction with New York Cares, a non-profit organization that donated 58,000 coats to local social service agencies, churches, schools and shelters last holiday season. New York Cares is the city’s largest volunteer organization, running programs for 1,200 nonprofits, city agencies and public schools.
