Better Together collecting notebook paper through Aug. 5

Milton's Better Together volunteer organization is partnering with non-profit North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) throughout July and early August to collect notebook paper for local children in dire need of school supplies.

Residents who wish to pitch-in may drop supplies off at Milton's City Hall, located at 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107 (click here for directions), between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., said volunteer Teri Harrison, who is leading the effort.

Residents may also arrange for pickup of larger donations by contacting Wayne Boston, community builder for the City of Milton, at 678-242-2512 or

All supplies must be collected by Aug. 5 to ensure distribution to students, said Boston.

"Without groups like Better Together, we wouldn't be able to respond to the needs of the community," said Eden Purdy of NFCC. "We hope residents will be able to help start a local student off right this year."

Better Together is a volunteer organization of Milton residents looking for unique and fun ways to connect with neighbors.  If you would like more information on Better Together or any of its activities, please contact Boston at 678-242-2512 or
