With the coldest weather of the season yet to come, the Hall County Sheriff's Office has teamed up with Hall County Schools, Syfan Logistics, the Hall County Tax Commissioner and Hall County Government to conduct its annual Winter C.O.A.T.S. (Community Organization Anticipating Toasty Students) Drive!
The collection is primarily for Hall County elementary and middle school age children, but all sizes of new coats, hats and gloves will be accepted. The collection locations are presently at the Hall County Law Enforcement Center (610 Main Street in Gainesville), the Hall County Jail (1700 Barber Road in Gainesville), the Hall County Sheriff’s Office South Precinct (3475 Cody Drive in Flowery Branch) and in the Hall County Tax Commissioner's Office on the first floor of the Hall County Government Center (2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville).
If you would like to donate a new coat, hat or pair of gloves, the hours for accepting those items are between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
