Milton’s Better Together volunteer committee will join North Fulton Community Charities to collect gently used coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves through Tuesday.

Citizens wishing to donate can drop off items at Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107F, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Citizens can also drop off items at 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.

Citizens who would like to donate but are unable to deliver items to the above locations can contact Community Builder Wayne Boston at (678) 242-2512 or, and he will make arrangements for pick-up.
