The 10th annual Totes to Tots suitcase drive for foster children will be held next week.
Georgia Cancer Specialists offices across Georgia, including four in the midstate, are sponsoring the drive 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Jan. 13, according to a news release.
Totes to Tots delivers donated backpacks and kid-size suitcases to foster children in Georgia from infants to teenagers. Many of these children must shuffle their belongings from home to home in garbage bags during frequent relocations, the release stated.
Anyone interested should drop off new or nearly new bags at these locations:
Macon: 308 Coliseum Drive, Suite 120;
Milledgeville: 624 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive;
Hawkinsville: 214 Perry Highway;
Lake Oconee: 1000 Cowles Clinic Way, Magnolia Building.

The Department of Family and Children Services helps distribute the bags in the counties where they’re collected.
