Commissioner Arrington to Kick-Off Dads, Daughters & Dolls Drive | Print |

Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr., in partnership with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, is inviting residents to support the annual Dads, Daughters, and Dolls drive.  As part of the effort to reach out to families in need this holiday season, this campaign collects new dolls and other toys for daughters of men incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail.   In addition to the toys, daughters will receive handwritten letters from their fathers.

"As the parent of four daughters, I understand how deeply important the holiday season is for children as they anticipate gift giving and sharing the season with those they love,” says Commissioner Arrington. "I want other daughters to feel their fathers' love beyond bars, to know whether absent or present, they are loved."

This Drive takes place from December 4, 2017 through December 15, 2017 between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm. Participants are asked contribute toys for children between the ages of 1 and 12 by dropping off donations at the following locations:
