NG Co-Op Holidays
In early October the NG Co-Op begins the vetting process & sign-ups for individuals & families in need of some additional help during the holiday season. Prior to Thanksgiving we collect items to go into pre-made meal boxes holding traditional items and $20 gift cards for meat preferences. This past year prior to Thanksgiving Day, with the help of our volunteers, we were able to pass out food for over 1,600 people living in Buford, Sugar Hill & Suwanee with 470 meal boxes & gift cards given along with some donated turkeys & pies from Lowe’s. For Christmas we repeat the process of distributing meal boxes, gift cards & extra fresh foods to our deserving clients. In addition, thanks to many hours of volunteer efforts, we collect hundreds of requested items donated thru sponsorship for children and Senior Citizens, with each recipient receiving a minimum of five wrapped presents placed in red bags. The distribution process is a joyous time for all involved!
