The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce held a party Thursday night, and the price to get will go directly to hungry people in the community. Every "Summer Jam" attendee was asked to bring a food donation for North Fulton Community Charities' (NFCC) food pantry.
The chamber offices were overflowing with the crowd, most coming straight from their own offices to the event, or perhaps with one stop at a local grocery store. This event was part of the chamber's week-long food drive for NFCC.
The food drive culminates with an active push from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. today to fill the charity's truck that will be in the parking lot at the chamber offices off Haynes Bridge Road at Rainwater Drive. Businesses that have been drop-off points for the food drive in Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell and Johns Creek will deliver the food they've collected. But local residents are asked to also stop by the chamber today to help fill up the truck.
The top 10 recommended donations:
- Canned tuna
- Canned chicken
- Canned fruit
- Peanut butter (no glass containers)
- Jelly (no glass containers)
- Macaroni and cheese
- Ramen noodles
- Cereal (children friendly)
- Pasta sauce (no glass containers)
- Diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6).
