Georgia Cancer Specialists, Northside Hospital collect suitcases for foster children


ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Georgia Cancer Specialists and Northside Hospital are hosting the annual Totes 2 Tots drive to collect backpacks and suitcases for foster children in Georgia. Donations of new or nearly new backpacks, duffel bags and suitcases will be accepted at locations across the state.
The GCS location at 3330 Preston Ridge Road will be accepting donations Friday, Jan. 13 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Since Totes 2 Tots launched in 2003, the annual volunteer event has collected and distributed more than 48,000 bags.
“Dr. Martin Luther King said, ‘Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.’ That is why the [GCS] physicians and staff take pride in celebrating his memory by participating in Totes 2 Tots for the fifteenth consecutive year,” said Dr. Cheryl Jones, vice president and chief medical officer at GCS.
