Mets' Holiday Coat Drive at Citi Field set for Dec. 1

NEW YORK -- The Mets announced they will host their annual Holiday Coat Drive on Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET at Citi Field. Fans who donate a new or gently used coat will receive a voucher redeemable for two tickets to a select Mets home game in April, plus 15 percent off regularly priced merchandise at the Mets Team Store on the day of the drive.

Mr. Met will be in attendance from noon-1 p.m. Donors can park in Lot G on 126th St., and donate their coats at the team store adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.

For the 10th year in a row, the Mets are holding their drive in conjunction with New York Cares, the city's largest volunteer management organization.
