MILTON, Ga. – Milton's Better Together volunteer committee will join North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) to collect gently used coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves through Oct. 29.
The following locations have been designated as drop-off points:
• Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107F, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
• Milton Fire Station No. 42, 15240 Thompson Road.
"We are hopeful Milton's residents will make a special effort to donate needed items to this worthy cause," said Terri Harrison, a Better Together member and Milton resident coordinating the coat drive. "Help bring the gift of warmth to families in the North Fulton area this fall and winter."
Eden Purdy of NFCC said last year more than 1,200 coats and jackets were distributed to 274 families. This year's drive is expected to reach more than 300 families, she said.
