The Devils’ annual Coat Drive will take place this Sat., Nov. 30, when the club hosts the Buffalo Sabres at Prudential Center at 7:00 PM. For the 18th straight season, the Devils have teamed up with Jersey Cares.
Volunteers from Jersey Cares will be located at the PNC Bank and Lafayette Towers, the Lafayette Street, VIP and Skybridge entrances to collect the coats. The wives/ girlfriends of Devils’ players will also be on hand to assist in the collection. Fans making a donation will be eligible to win autographed Devils’ memorabilia.
Following the collection, the coats will be distributed by Jersey Cares to more than 200 non-profit agencies in New Jersey including shelters, social service organizations, senior citizen centers, and schools.
