How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

United Way of Greater Atlanta Needs Volunteers to Sort and Distribute Coats for Project Overcoat


For more than 25 years, United Way of Greater Atlanta has partnered with FedEx, FOX 5 and others for Project Overcoat, a coat and blanket drive for men, women and children in need.   The drive runs through Saturday, January 24. The sorting and distribution of the coats will be coordinated by United Way and will be held February 4-6 and 9-13.
 
Project Overcoat is a perfect opportunity for families, church groups, civic organizations and others to volunteer. Last winter, residents throughout the 13-county metro region gave nearly 19,000 coats to their neighbors in need. This year’s goal is to collect 25,000 new and gently used blankets, coats, hats and gloves. United Way partners with 100 nonprofit agencies to distribute the items to men, women and children in need.
 
To sign up to volunteer, register at unitedwayatlanta.org/events.  Please see the details below.
 
In addition to FedEx, other Project Overcoat sponsors include KISS 104.1 and Kroger.
