The following organizations helped make this food drive possible through donations and volunteers:

• And hundreds of volunteers from the community.

The Co-Op is asking for the public’s assistance in making sure that no one in North Gwinnett goes without a holiday meal this season. Businesses, schools, faith-based organizations and other community groups are encouraged to organize food drives during the Christmas season and throughout the year. Food for the Christmas boxes must be received by Friday, December 15. Holiday food received after that time will be distributed to the Co-Op’s 2018 Food Distribution program.  The Co-Op asks that donations be dropped off at the organization’s Buford facilities:
