Project Bundle Up needs you

November 2, 2007

Albany --  It's nice to be able to grab a coat on a cold mornings, but there are some kids right here in South Georgia who don't have that luxury.

That's why Open Arms of Albany has started a new operation called Project Bundle Up. They are collecting coats, preferably for children, to pass out to those in need during the winter months.

Open Arms serves about 50 children at any given time, and those children are in constant need of clothing, but money is tight.

"Recently there's been some cuts, governmental cuts that don't pay for as many things as they used to," said Boys Home Director Skip Wiles. 

"We're elated when we know that we've made a difference in the life of a child, even if it's something as simple as getting a warm winter coat," said Paula Mays.

Open Arms will accept new, used, even slightly damaged coats for the kids. They will accept adult coats as well for teenagers and young adults.
