ATLANTA -

The drive to provide new or gently used coats to those in need is nearing its end. FOX 5 wants to remind everyone there is still time to donate before Project Overcoat ends on January 19.

FOX 5's Tacoma Perry visited My Sister's House on Howell Mill road in Atlanta for one last push for your help!

Donation boxes with the Project Overcoat logo will be placed in metro-area Kroger stores, and donations will be picked up by FedEx and delivered to the Atlanta Mission throughout the campaign.  The United Way and the Atlanta Mission coordinate to distribute donations to more than 60 agencies where they're needed most.

Project Overcoat is sponsored by the United Way of Greater Atlanta, FOX 5, Kroger, FedEx, The Atlanta Mission, and KISS 104.1 FM
