Fulton County BHDD and Board of Health Launches CLASS Holiday Food & Care Package Drive Monday, November 15, 2021

November 15, 2021

As the holiday season approaches, the Fulton County Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities (BHDD) in collaboration with the Fulton County Board of Health will launch the Community Linkage Adherence Support Services (CLASS) Holiday Food & Care Package Drive on Monday, November 15, 2021 to supply CLASS members with non-perishable food items and toiletry packages.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shortage of viable resources, especially within food pantries making challenging times even more difficult to fulfill members’ expressed needs. As such, the Department of BHDD and the Board of Health are committed to improving the quality of life of all CLASS members by collecting durable food items and toiletry packages. 

Collections will take place November 15, 2021 through December 10, 2021 to be distributed to CLASS members December 13-17, 2021.  

Participants are encouraged to donate some of the following non-perishable food items:

Canned Vegetables 
Canned Fruits 
Instant Potatoes 
Evaporated Milk
Canned meat
Stuffing Mix
Canned Yams
Peanut Butter
Spaghetti Sauce
Cranberry Sauce

In addition, CLASS Navigators will also collect the following personal care items:
