Commissioner Arrington to kick off annual Dads, Daughters & Dolls Plus Sons Drive | Print |

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

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

The drive takes place from December 3, 2018 through December 14, 2018, between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm. Participants are asked to contribute toys for children between the ages of 1 and 12 by dropping off donations at the following locations:

Fulton County Government Center
141 Pryor Street SW., Atlanta, GA 30303

Oak Hill Family Center
2805 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30315

Fulton County South Annex
5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park, GA 30349

The drive will conclude with a gift wrapping party at Suite Food Lounge, 375 Luckie St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30313 from 6-9 p.m. on Monday, December 17, 2018. To volunteer, please RSVP at

This year's drive is sponsored by Commissioner Arrington in conjunction with Suite Food Lounge.
