Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by United Way)

During the frigid winter months, imagine sleeping on the cold pavement. Imagine wearing only doubled-up T-shirts to work in 20-degree weather because that’s all you have to keep warm. Unfortunately, this is the reality for far too many metro Atlantans who are homeless or can’t afford a coat or blanket.

From Jan. 8-22, everyone is encouraged to drop off blankets or new or gently used coats of all sizes at any Kroger in the metro region.

WHAT:  Project Overcoat. All sizes needed, from children to adult sizes.                   

WHEN:  Jan. 8-22. Drop off at any Kroger store in metro Atlanta.
