Georgia Cancer Specialists will sponsor the 11th annual Totes 2 Tots suitcase drive for foster children at 18 GCS offices in metro Atlanta on Friday, Jan. 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To participate, simply drop off a new or nearly new backpack at one of the offices. The bags will be distributed to foster children, many of whom must shuffle their belongings from home to home in garbage bags during frequent relocations. The event has collected more than 30,000 bags since it began.
