ROSWELL, Ga. – Fall is here and the winter months are fast approaching. For many families who are without winter clothing, this can be a challenge while waiting on public transportation, or walking to school and work.
North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is reaching out once again to the North Fulton community, asking everyone to support the 2012 Warm Coat Drive. NFCC is collecting new and gently used coats and accessories for adults and children.
Last year, the organization was able to provide over 300 families living in North Fulton with coats, jackets, scarves, mittens and caps for every member of the family. For these families, every day brings new challenges, new struggles and new disparities in job searching, government programs and solutions to the economy.
Residents can bring their new and gently used coats, jackets and accessories to the NFCC Holiday Distribution Site, 1425 Market Boulevard, Kings Market Shopping Center (the old Comp USA building) in Roswell, Oct. 25-26 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. All donations directly support families in need.
NFCC strives to prevent homelessness in North Fulton by supporting families during short-term emergencies with food, clothing, rent, utilities and other basic needs.
