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.

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.

New Opportunity to Volunteer with HomeStretch

HomeStretch Volunteer Opportunities 

1. Create Welcome Home Baskets for New Families Moving Into HomeStretch
A flurry of new families are moving into HomeStretch, a temporary housing complex for homeless families, we would love your help in welcoming them.  We could use your help by creating welcome baskets that will be waiting for them in their new apartments.

Ideas to include in the basket are: Laundry Basket, Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Bag of Laundry Detergent Pods, Box of Fabric Softener, Spray Bottle of Disinfectant for Kitchen/Bath, Tube of Clorox or Lysol Wipes, New sponges/kitchen tea towels, Hand Soap, Trash Can Liners, Light Bulbs, Kleenex
Please drop your basket at HomeStretch directly between 9-5 at 89 Grove Way in the Child Development Academy building or right here at the RPC church office.  Questions?  Contact: Donna Brodsky

2. HomeStretch Planning for Crafts for Elementary Aged Children
We are looking for a few folks to help us prepare craft projects for our elementary aged children during a Youth LifeSkills class.

We would reimburse expenses for all supplies. The volunteer(s) would need to plan, shop for supplies, and drop at the HomeStretch office(twice/month). This could be a creative, fun role and very flexible in terms of time--and would be a huge help to HomeStretch.  Interested in hearing more? Contact Donna Brodsky

3. Homestretch is looking for some married couples who can relate to our teens as small group facilitators
Homestretch is looking for some married couples who can relate to our teens as small group facilitators on the third and fourth Tuesday night of each month.  HomeStretch will do all the prep work, we just need your time and willingness to invest in the kids, getting to know them and encourage them.  Groups meet at RPC.   Dinner is from 6:15pm to 7:00pm and the group meets 7:00pm-8:00pm.  Contact Carol Swan, 770-642-9185 x115
