NEW YORK - Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson kicked off the 25th annual New York Cares Coat Drive at the Bowery Mission today.

Kelly and Johnson handed out 100 coats to the homeless to start the drive. New York Cares accepts and distributes coats to the homeless during the winter.

“We will make certain that those in need actually get these coats," said Kelly. “So not only is New York the safest big city in America, we want to make it the most generous.”

The drive runs through Feb. 7. Anyone interested in donating a coat can bring one to a designated drop-off location.
