News Letter 

BFA appreciates ALL of the wonderful people that support our mission of helping those in need. We truly could not provide the high levels of assistance needed in our County without the support of our community. No
donation or amount of time donated is too small as every bit helps us support our neighbors in need. We would like to take this opportunity to give a special thanks to a few folks that went over and beyond for our
organization in 2021.
• Christmas in July served 395 Brunswick County children for 2021. This provided children with a bookbag, school supplies, outfit of clothing & shoes.
• We also want to thank all of the civic groups and individuals that supported us in 2021 ! Again, we could not do it with out your support and we are beyond grateful!

Christmas 2021 

With another year behind us, BFA would like to share with you the impact of the support from our community. Each year BFA staff and volunteers process hundreds of applications for children and
seniors in Brunswick County who need a little extra help for Christmas. This is an “angel tree” program and tags are generated for each eligible applicant and sponsored by generous donors who shop for the tag wishes. This year, through the help and kindness of many individuals, communities, faith based groups and other civic organizations, BFA was able to provide Christmas for 1,427 individuals in Brunswick County. In Shallotte that was 646 kids and 265 Seniors, Leland 228 kids and 70 seniors coming to a total of 874 kids and 335 seniors. Toys for Tots we were able to help 218 children ages 13-16. In addition, we worked with the Shallotte and Sunset Beach police to help collect toys for children. This allows children and seniors to wake up and smile on Christmas morning and it’s because of wonderful people like you in our community who want to give back. We at BFA are so grateful for ALL of the support that we receive.

Second Helping OIB

Second Helping OIB collected 3400 lbs. of food for Brunswick Family Assistance over the weekend. We are very appreciative of Second Helping OIB and their generous efforts.


  • To all of the volunteers that donated THOUSANDS of hours in 2021, THANK YOU! With a small staff and the overwhelming need, it truly takes a village and BFA is fortunate to have an AMAZING village of dedicated volunteers. From working the food pantry and front desk 5 days per week, to spending an entire month setting up and organizing gifts for the Christmas program , YOU ARE ALL ROCKSTARS!!!
