Milton's Better Together volunteer committee wants to help make sure all North Fulton families are warm this fall and winter. The committee has joined with North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) to collect gently used coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves through Oct. 29.
More than 300 families are expected to be helped by this year's drive, according to a news release from the city. Last year, more than 1,200 coats and jackets were distributed to 274 families, said Eden Purdy of NFCC.
