Together we make it happen.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the

Center. Caring people of all ages donate

their time, energy and resources to better

The mission of the Flat Rock Community Center, Inc. is to provide assistance to our neighbors in need through education,
advocacy, and the acquisition, storage, and distribution of food.
Our intention is to provide assistance without discrimination and adhere to core Christian values.
Without the intention of making profit, we accept donations of food items, clothing and household items
approved for sale in our thrift store and monetary donations for operating expenses and food purchases
from churches, individuals, businesses and organizations.

The Flat Rock Community Center began serving the people of Jackson and Dekalb counties in Alabama in April, 2009.
