First and foremost, visit www.gwinnettcares.org. They are caring for our community thru COVID-19. Their website is FULL of ways that you can help specifically thru either donations, giving funding, volunteering and more.
With all the uncertainty in our world, how can we best be of help to each other & our community?
First of all, prayer is so important.
Second, look for ways to give back - nothing means more than a phone call, text, or even good old fashioned snail mail to let others know they are loved and cared about during difficult times.
Consider doing a food drive in your neighborhood and dropping off at one of the drop off points on the Gwinnett Cares site.

Since COVID-19 arrived, the Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries (formerly the Norcross Cooperative Ministry), has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of clients we see these days, 5 times the average amount. The financial assistance the Co-op provides for emergency rent and utility assistance has increased 7 times. Those numbers may remain the same or even rise if we see a new surge of the virus in our area. These increases have put a tremendous strain on our ability to help those in need. Through it all, NCM has not closed its doors. We have remained open on the front lines of COVID-19 to serve those in need. That’s why I’m writing to you today. If you are able, we need your help. Can we count on you for your support?
