Warm Coat Day
This year, Warm Coat Day served 246 families in North Fulton with the help of 145 volunteers who helped with collecting, sorting and distribution. Community coat drives were held by schools, churches, neighborhoods and civic groups.
NFCC distributed 1,892 items including coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves, for adults and children.
This year marked the 25th year for the warm coat drive which was started in 1994 by local Girl Scout Cadet Troop 628.
Each year, NFCC collects new and gently worn coats and jackets as well as accessories such as hats, scarves and gloves, for adults and children, throughout the month of October culminating with Warm Coat Day.
