North Fulton Community Charities’ has helped families with holiday assistance for over 30 years. Last year’s annual holiday assistance program served over 900 families and 1,800 children. The holiday assistance program begins with Warm Coat Day followed by a Thanksgiving Food Program, a Sponsored Families Program and Santa Shop. Holiday Baskets are also provided to over 150 local senior residents in November and December. This holiday assistance relieves the additional financial stress for families living in poverty or from paycheck to paycheck. All of the families live in the cities of Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell.
Holiday distribution for all programs will be located at the old Thomasville Furniture store (across from JC Penney and next to the California Pizza Kitchen), 310 North Point Circle, Alpharetta, 30022. A special thanks to Hubert Realty Company for donating the space.
Warm Coat Day
Over 1,450 coats shared with families in need last year. With your help, we can help keep local families warm this winter. Warm Coat Day will be October 26, 2019.
Thanksgiving Food Distribution
Our community provided over 400 families in need supplies for a complete Thanksgiving dinner in their own home last year. Thanksgiving Food will be distributed on November 24, 2019.
Local groups and individuals create Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for seniors (ages 65 and over) and disabled adults. Senior baskets will be delivered on November 23 and December 15, 2019.
The NFCC Santa Shop is unique because donated toys are arranged in a toy store format and qualified parents have the opportunity to pick out their child’s holiday gifts. Santa Shop will be held December 14 and 15, 2019.
