North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is launching their 2nd Annual Have A Heart for NFCC campaign in February, according to a press release.
The initiative is supported by Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle, Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker, Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood, Mountain Park Mayor Jim Still and Roswell Mayor Jere Woods. The local leaders each signed a joint proclamation recognizing February as Have A Heart for NFCC month and “calling upon the citizens to join in the celebration by making a contribution in support of the great work that NFCC is doing to enhance the quality of life in our city,” stated the release.
As part of the month-long event, the Lions in Alpharetta will get help from The Original Pancake Factory for an event at Alpharetta First United Methodist Church, teens will jam at the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA, and ladies will be pampered by Davao Hair Studio, Milton Chiropractic, & Milton Pilates
The purpose of this 28-day campaign is to raise awareness and much needed funding for the programs and services offered by NFCC. This year marks 30 years since NFCC began serving the North Fulton community. The organization's mission is to:
Build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs.
