NFCC

North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is the primary human services agency for residents in North Fulton County. NFCC has a client choice panty; their clients go to the computers in their lobby and choose the food their family needs so this is a list of the current NFCC needs.

Volunteer to Help the Homeless in North Fulton 

Are you interested in volunteering to help the homeless in North Fulton? North Fulton Community Charities has partnered with local churches, civic groups and individuals to activate a warming center for homeless adults in North Fulton when the weather creates safety issues for those that are unprotected in our community. Warming Centers are set up all over the country in churches, civic buildings and others as an emergency measure. Because they are only used in emergency situations, the decision to open is generally made on a daily basis. When North Fulton Community Charities determines the weather unsafe an alert is sent out to the community that it will open that night. They are looking for volunteers who have the availability to get the message that day and be ready that evening to volunteer. The first volunteer shift works from 5:30-9:30pm getting guests checked in, serving dinner and helping clean up. The second shift works from 8:45pm-7am. This overnight shift will help check guests into sleeping quarters, monitor hallways and prepare a grab and go breakfast. Volunteers on the overnight shift will rotate so that everyone gets a chance to get a few hours of sleep. We also need volunteers who are interested in preparing the meal for the night.  


Food Pantry Needs of NFCC

These items are needed most: canned tuna chicken and meat, cereal and oatmeal, dried beans 1 lb bag, all types of pasta, pasta sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, meals in can, jelly/peanut butter, mac n cheese, flavored rice/pasta, ramen noodle packs, canned beans, black beans, refried beans, garbanzo. All toiletries; toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. families can not use food stamps for these so the need is high. 

Not needed: Green beans, corn, peas, soups, pumpkin, gravy, white beans and kidney beans

Please place these items in the bins outside the church office or you may drop them directly at NFCC at 11270 Elkins Road, Roswell
