NYSEC and the 1010 Wins/Bioheat® Coat Drive

With Bioheat® fuel, we help protect our environment – New York City, Long Island and Earth. This winter, we held our annual coat drive in conjunction with the 1010 Wins/Bioheat® Coat Drive to help those in need within the five boroughs. NYSEC's member dealers have been helping by collecting coats from family members, employees and customers, and we’re pleased to say that the coat drive has been a huge success so far – we’ve collected over 1,500 coats, and we’re still counting!

NYSEC is just one of the many companies who has gotten involved with the 1010 Wins/Bioheat® Coat Drive. Now in its fourth year, the drive has collected coats from schools on Long Island and businesses throughout the city, collecting over 60,000 coats in December and working toward a goal of 125,000 coats throughout the entire drive. Everyone is getting in on helping those in need stay warm!
