Rockdale Probate Judge Mays spearheads ‘Share the Warmth’ coat drive

CharlesMaysCONYERS–Probate Judge Charles May invites Rockdale County residents to join him this winter in helping with a coat drive for the needy. 


Mays has joined forces with the Hero Foundation, Inc. a local nonprofit, to collect and distribute clean, gently-used winter coats to Rockdale residents.

“This coat drive offers a unique and rewarding way for all of us to come together as a community and contribute to the health and well-being of our neighbors. Every coat helps—and everyone who gives one discovers how great it feels to provide that help,” said Judge Mays. “I challenge other leaders and civic organizations to join us this winter as we Share the Warmth throughout this county. As more and more children and adults experience economic challenges, the need for warm coats grows. As those with extra coats in their closets help their neighbors in need, the community becomes a warmer place for all.”

Donated coats should be clean, with zippers and fasteners present and in good working condition. Donors can drop off coats at the following location: Providence Church International, 1240 Hwy 138, Conyers. Collection hours are generally Thursdays through Saturdays, 1 – 5 p.m.

Residents seeking warm coats can call 404-593-0040.
