Fayetteville, Georgia - Helping the Helpers program was started in 2001 through a desire from members of the Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services to help the organizations and people of our community that provide aid to those in need of assistance. Public safety employees come in contact with people that need assistance and refer these people to organizations within the county that have programs to aid them. This program is a way for employees to help those organizations. Items are distributed to the Fayette Samaritans, Real Life Center and Fayette County Youth Home as needed. These organizations distribute the items to people in need, share surplus with other organizations and some may sell surplus items in a thrift shop and use the money from the sales to further assist people in need by buying items needed or providing monetary assistance to those in need (assist with paying bills such as electric, heat, water, etc.). The donated items of food, clothing, toys, personal care items, health care items and household items help many people and families. Members within the department deliver the items to the organizations or to a contact person in the department. The contact person inspects and sorts the items and provides the donator with a list of items donated. The donor receives a receipt from the organization(s) that receive the items.During the last four years the department has averaged donations of personal care items, toys, books, clothing and other charitable items of more than $10,000 each year.
