Albany-- As winter approaches, an area business wants to make sure people in need have coats to keep them warm.

Central Monitoring is collecting new and used coats in good condition on behalf of the Food Bank of Southwest Georgia.

People can bring coats of all sizes and colors to the Central Monitoring office on Pine Avenue, any of the Albany fire stations and other collection sites around town. The program is called "One Warm Coat" and organizers hope to get them to those in need as soon as possible.

"Already this box and some at the fire stations are already full. We are pumped up. This is very exciting. Already we can see that this will be a worthwhile effort for us and the people who are going to benefit from this effort.," says Kevin Hogencamp of Central Monitoring.

Donations will be accepted until the middle of January. Central Monitoring will deliver them to the Food Bank who will then distribute the coats to families.  You can reach the "One Warm Coat" Hotline at 229-434-1176.
