Family Promise week is back! - Dec 9th - Dec 16th! The success of Family Promise - North Fulton/Dekalb depends on the efforts and enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers. Without volunteers, there would be no Family Promise ministry!
Food Pantry Needs of 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.
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
