Annual effort assists families in need with clothing and food during holiday season

Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr., in cooperation with the Fulton County Department of Community Development, will sponsor a drive to collect new or gently used winter coats, clothes, blankets, and toiletries to help those who are in need during the holiday season.  As part of the “Blanket Atlanta with Love” drive, bins will be placed at three Fulton County facilities to gather blankets, coats, ponchos, and other cold weather clothing beginning today, November 1, 2021 and concluding November 12, 2021. 

The event culminates with a dinner and distribution of the new and gently used goods collected at the Fulton County Government Center on Tuesday, November 16, 2021 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
“The recent events surrounding the pandemic have emphasized why we should be mindful of the needs of our fellow man and this effort is a good way to assist our neighbors who are struggling,” says Commissioner Marvin S.
