Due to icy conditions on side roads and our HQ parking lot, we have decided to cancel Saturday drop-off hours for our Winter Coat & Clothing Drive. We anticipate that Sunday & Monday drop-off hours will open as scheduled. The safety of our volunteers and donors is important to us. If you have items you were planning to donate (and cannot make it during Sunday or Monday drop-off hours), please email us at fayettedemocratsky@gmail.com and we can see if we can make alternate arrangements to get your items. Thanks!


This weekend, as we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we think of the question he once asked: “Life’s my persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”

We recognize that winter is a difficult time for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. So this upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Weekend we will be collecting winter coats/clothes (used or new) and other supplies at our FCDP Headquarters January 13-15. We will distribute collected items to two non-profits in town: The Hope Center and The Nest.
