2015 HOLIDAY PROGRAM

Thank you for your interest in supporting the North Gwinnett Co-Op during the holidays.

Please find below the different holiday programs we are conducting and how you can help.


Holiday Meal Box Program:

In addition to the standard, monthly groceries a family receives, the North Gwinnett Co-Op offers each family a holiday meal box for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Recipients for the meal box program are pre-qualified as clients of the North Gwinnett Co-Op. Recipients will sign up for their meal box and pick their meal box up from the Co-Op during designated pick up times.   The holiday meal box contains the food needed to prepare a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner for themselves and/or their family.  Donations for the holiday meal box are needed. Each holiday box will include a $20 gift card to a local grocery store so the individual/family may purchase perishable items. Items needed for the holiday boxes are; cranberry sauce, canned yams, boxed potatoes, boxed stuffing, gravy, cream of mushroom soup or other broths, corn bread/muffin mix, crackers, boxed desserts, canned fruit and $20 gift card to a local grocery store for perishable items.  Sponsorship for a meal box is $50.00 per box.  If desired, the donor's name is listed on the meal box.

 

Sponsor a child or senior for Christmas: Child Sponsorships: Qualified clients will complete a wish list for their assigned child(ren). Sponsors are asked to purchase the following for the child: a winter coat (if needed), set of pajamas, one outfit for school or church, one pair of shoes, a toy, not to exceed $30.00.    Senior Sponsorships: Qualified clients will complete a wish list of needs. Sponsors are asked to purchase the following for the senior:  a winter coat (if needed), a clothing or household need, needed personal care items.  Sponsors will be given the wish list for their child/senior and deliver the wrapped gifts to the Co-Op on the designated date. Gifts will be picked up by the family/senior being sponsored.
