Coatsgiving

NFCC's Coat and Thanksgiving Food Drive

Help families in need have outerwear for the winter months and be able to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with a festive meal.

For many years North Fulton neighbors came together to help families in need by providing new or gently-used coats, gloves, scarves, mittens and hats in early fall and all the makings of a delicious Thanksgiving dinner in late fall. These two programs are now combined for the ease and convenience of families in need and those wanting to help. 

With the support of the community, we provided food for 520 families as well as 1,600 coats and 3,200 winter accessories in 2023. 

Dates

November 11-16, 2024

Ways to Give

Donate Needed Food and Clothing Items

We welcome donations of food such as such as a turkey breast, whole roaster chicken, ham, or frozen entrees, or donations of coats and winter accessories of all sizes. You might also choose to donate grocery or major retail store gift cards.  This year’s event has ended.  Look for information in summer 2024.

Make a Financial Contribution

Shopping is not the only way to help provide outerwear and Thanksgiving food for a family in need.  Make a financial donation to help a family prepare for cold weather and holidays. 

Volunteer

Volunteers are needed to assemble, sort, receive and distribute both food and warm clothing.
