One Warm Coat Drive has coat shortage

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Central Monitoring officials say they are in need of coats to help keep people in need warm this winter. They even extended their Coat Drive deadline.     

The One Warm Coat Drive has been extended to January 20th. Officials say they are accepting any coat size but that they are in need of children's coats. They've received more than 800 coats so far. They say the freezing temperatures have led to the shortage of coats.   

"We just don't have as many coats as we need for all those little children out there that still need coats. So we're asking anyone if your child received a coat for Christmas and they have an old coat that doesn't fit them please donate that," said Judy Randle.  

All coats are donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank to be distributed.  Collection boxes are located at all the Fire stations in Albany and at the Central Monitoring location on 522 Pine Avenue. There's even a box at WALB on 1709 Stuart Ave. For more information on where you can donate call Central Monitoring at 229-434-1176.
