Seasonal Assistance Programs
Together, we can help!
Join us in helping families in need in our community by supporting our seasonal assistance programs. For families who are struggling to afford the basics, the cost of seasonal extras can be a substantial financial burden. Each year, our caring community of supporters comes together to help families with seasonal needs.
Help prepare children for a new school year by providing backpacks filled with essential school supplies. Last year, NFCC distributed over 1,000 new backpacks to elementary, middle, and high school children living in North Fulton. This year’s backpack drive runs July 22 -27, 2024.
Providing coats and Thanksgiving food helps ease the financial burden of the holiday season. Over 500 local families are provided with the essentials to prepare a Thanksgiving meal in their own home. Each family member also receives a coat and winter accessories to stay warm during the winter months. This year’s program runs November 11-16, 2024.
Toyland helps provide a magical and memorable holiday to children in need. At Toyland, new, unwrapped toys are arranged in a store layout, and parents have the opportunity to select holiday gifts based on their children’s preferences. Last year, nearly 1,400 children were served. This year Toyland runs December 16-21, 2024.
Twice a year during spring and winter, the community comes together to create festive baskets for more than 300 local seniors, many who are medically fragile or homebound. In addition to much needed essentials, these baskets let seniors know we value and appreciate them.
Spring Senior Baskets program runs April 10-13, 2024
Holiday Senior Baskets program runs December 5-7, 2024
