North Bay Cadillac owner Jack Weidinger presented local Long Island charities with more than 2,000 new warm winter coats for children in need.

The coats were provided by Operation Warm as part of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association’s annual coat drive which raised in excess of $90,000 for children in need in Nassau, Suffolk, NYC, Westchester and Rockland counties.
