Fall is here and the winter months are fast approaching. For many families who are without winter clothing, this can be a challenge while waiting at the bus stop, waiting on public transportation or walking to school and work.

North Fulton Community Charities is reaching out once again to the north Fulton community asking everyone to support our 2012 Warm Coat Drive. NFCC is collecting new and gently used coats and accessories for adults and children. Last year the nonprofit was able to provide more than 300 families living in north Fulton with coats, jackets, scarves, mittens and caps for every member of the family.

For these families every day brings new challenges, new struggles and new disparities in job searching, government programs, and solutions to a struggling economy.

The organization is asking residents to bring new and gently used coats, jackets and accessories to the NFCC Holiday Distribution Site at 1425 Market Blvd., Kings Market Shopping Center in Roswell, on Oct. 25 or 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information on the NFCC 2011 Warm Coat Drive,contact Eden Purdy at (770) 640-0399, ext. 208 or visit the NFCC Holiday website at
