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.

Back to School Backpack Drive

Help families prepare their children for a new school year by donating backpacks filled with school supplies or volunteering to help. Last year NFCC distributed over 1,250 new backpacks to children living in North Fulton.  Backpack distribution takes place July 27-29.


Warm Coats Drive

Join us to help keep local families warm this winter with coats and cold weather accessories.  This year’s program will November 6-11.

Thanksgiving Food Distribution

Help families enjoy a festive holiday meal without the financial burden. Families in need will receive a complete Thanksgiving dinner to prepare in their own home. Thanksgiving food will be distributed this year November 6-11.

Toyland Shop

Bring a smile to a child’s face this holiday season by donating toys and gift cards. Donated toys will be arranged in a toy store format so parents in need  can pick out holiday gifts for their children. Last year 575 families shopped at our Toyland Shop.  This year Toyland Shop will be open for parents December 14-16.

Senior Baskets

Spread some cheer to a local senior or disabled adult by putting together a basket to be delivered. Last year we distributed baskets to more than 320 seniors in North Fulton in the spring and for the December holidays. We will collect baskets this year November 30 and December 1 and deliver December 2.
