Warren County Attorney aims to collect coats for foster kids

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – For the second year in a row, the County Attorney’s Association is holding a coat and hoodie drive.

This not only keeps the kids in foster care in Kentucky warm but makes a positive difference in their lives.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is trying to raise coats and hoodies for those in foster care in Kentucky.

Currently, there are 10,000 children in foster care in Kentucky.

In Warren County alone, there are 342 children in foster care.

The County Attorney’s Association is partnering with social workers to collect coats and hoodies statewide.

Amy Milliken, the Warren County Attorney, is leading the charge in helping Warren County’s foster kids.

Milliken began collecting the week before Thanksgiving, receiving a few coats already.

She has also recruited help from Fruit of the Loom and The Women’s Club.

Milliken aims to give foster kids in Warren County a Christmas they’ll never forget.

You can bring coats or hoodies to the warren county attorney’s office on the 2nd floor of the justice center.

Drop off days are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

You have until December 11th to make your donations.

The Warren County Courthouse is also accepting donations in Judge Buchanan’s office on the 2nd floor.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services also has a box to place donations in.

This is the first year the Cabinet for Health and Family Services has asked the County Attorneys to partner.

You can also call 270-782-2760 and someone from the Warren County Attorney’s office will pick up your donations.
