One little boy from Queens is looking to make a big difference this winter season.
Nine-year-old Gabriel Gonzalez is collecting coats to help the New York Cares annual coat drive. Last year he was able to collect over two hundred of them. If that isn't enough, he’s also collecting money to benefit One Warm Coat, which gives out two free coats for every dollar donated.
So far, the charitable-minded young man has raised about $480. He says "there are people who don't have coats and need them," and adds "some people actually do have coats on their Christmas lists, which is very sad."
If you want to help, you can email Gabriel at firstname.lastname@example.org. He's collecting through Tuesday.
