Opportunities for Groups

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at North Fulton Community Charities. NFCC Offices and volunteer requests are currently closed for the Holidays.  Our site will resume accepting volunteering requests on Thursday, January 2, 2020. Please check back then.

Working together to give back to the community is a great team building opportunity for corporate, civic and faith groups.  Volunteer groups may help receive and sort donations, count goods, stock shelves and general help like moving items, cleaning. etc. If your group is interested in volunteering with NFCC, fill out the form below and we will contact you to schedule your group.

You may be outside. You will not be working with our clients.

This waiver is required for every person coming. Waiver is required ONCE every calendar year. Everyone in your group should bring a signed hard copy with them when they come. Please do not bring valuables or large purses/backpacks. We cannot be responsible for your personal items. We will try to provide water bottles and a snack, but you may also bring your own.

Closed-toed shoes are a must! Wear comfortable, modest clothing. You may get a little bit dirty, so plan accordingly. We have gloves if you ask for them.

Please park in our overflow parking lot, directly across Elkins Road from our Thrift and Pantry building. There is a crosswalk down a bit to your right as you come back out of the overflow lot to cross back over to our building. Here is a diagram showing the location of the overflow lot.

Please enter through the Food Pantry Entrance – follow the signs on the left side of the building. You can either knock on the Employees Only door or have 1 member of your group go to the desk and ask for Jessica. We ask that groups of 15 or more wait outside if possible, weather permitting. Please be mindful of clients and do not block the entrance.

Please gather your group outside before entering Enter through the main Thrift Shop door, and let a staff member know that your group is there to volunteer. A staff member will be expecting you and will conduct your tour and put you to work. Please be mindful of customers and do not block the door.

Due to the large number of people in the building and limited space, it is difficult for us to wait for late arrivals. One of our staff will provide a brief tour and an overview of NFCC before you receive instructions and meet the supervisor for your activity.
