Medical group collects bags for foster kids in Georgia

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – One medical group is aiming to collect thousands of bags for foster kids in the state. 

This year is the 14th annual Totes 2 Tots campaign. The goal of the event is to give foster children bookbags who don’t have them. 

One spokeswoman in Macon says she thinks the bookbag drive is helping the community. 

“It’s kind of in conjunction with Martin Luther King’s birthday. You know he was such a man who advocated service to the community. So this is Georgia Cancer’s {Specialists} way of giving back to our community,” Jennifer Pittard, a cancer care liaison with the group, said. 

The Georgia Cancer Specialists Office in Macon collected more than 200 bags. The goal is for the entire campaign across the state to hand out more than 5,000 bookbags to foster kids.
