Keep'em Warm Coat Drive 2013

Posted: Updated:
TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

The annual Keep'em Warm Coat Drive will kick off Monday in Tift County.

Organizers say some struggling families have to decide whether to put food on the table or buy cold weather clothing. Last year's drive was a big hit and they say this year's could be the largest so far.

"I live in the best community there is and every year it exceeds my expectations of the number of coats we receive. Last year it was over 1,200 coats if we can make it 15 hundred this year that would be wonderful," said Melissa Cheevers Tift County Commissioner.

If you would like to donate a coat there are several drop-off sites: Carriage Cleaners, Charles Kent Building Commissioner's Office, Kelly Cleaners, Solomon Nixon Funeral Home or Call 229-326-0241.

The event runs through December 16th.
