A coat is so much more than a garment. It is security on a cold day at the bus stop. It is a reminder that someone cares.
Each year, NFCC collects new and gently worn coats and jackets as well as accessories such as hats, scarves and gloves, for adults and children, from individuals and community groups across North Fulton to distribute in early November.
Last year you provided 1,664 people in need with coats as well as hats, mittens and other accessories. Due, in part, to the financial impact of Covid, 60% more families participated last year than the year before. We expect that need to continue this year as our families continue to struggle for financial stability. Providing clothing assistance is a meaningful way to help ease hardship and foster financial stability.
