ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This week will likely be the coldest of the season so far in south Georgia. Central Monitoring is trying to make sure everyone can bundle up.

So far, they've collected more than 1,400 winter coats as part of the One Warm Coat drive. They're handing out the coats as fast as they collect them. Right now, their greatest need is children's coats. They hope people who got new coats for Christmas will donate their old one.

"They do not have to be new coats, gently used coats. We have also had a few people donate scarves and gloves and sweaters we will take those as well. If someone got a coat for christmas maybe they could donate their old coat," said Judy Randle of Central Monitoring.

You can drop off coats at any Albany fire station through the end of January.
