Feeding Hungry Children in Southwest Gwinnett County

Published

Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce Volunteers to help prepare and deliver meals to area children in need on Friday, July 12th.

The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce will work side by side with the organizers of PROJECT KIDS EAT to deliver meals in the Southwest Gwinnett area to children who often go without regular meals when school is not in session. Studies show that hunger and drug/sex trafficking are linked as predators lure children into activities with simple offers of food. Summer is an especially vulnerable time.

Mayors, Council members, and other SWGC members will make sandwiches, pack and deliver meals to over 100 children, located mostly in the extended stay hotels, on Friday, July 12th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

SWGC Chair (and Peachtree Corners Mayor Pro Tem), Weare Gratwick, explained that volunteering in areas of need were a central part of the chamber’s charter. “We are all in close proximity to kids who need our support. It is something that needs daily attention, and we were glad to participate with the folks who do this work throughout the summer and other times when school is out. Our community is made better because of the efforts of organizations like Project Kids Eat.” Membership Director, Beth Coffey also commented “the SWGC members are typically small to medium sized organizations in the SW corridor of Gwinnett County. They truly understand the specific needs of our community and are active in filling in gaps through our volunteer programs. It is one of the reasons Gwinnett County is such a tremendous place to live.”

Project Kids Eat is an outreach of Campus Church, located at 1525 Indian Trail Road.  They utilize volunteers every weekday to help with the outreach to over 100 children who rely on them for consistent and reliable meals during the summer.

The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary partnership of business and professional people, both profit and not-for-profit, working together to build a healthy economy and to improve the quality of life in Berkeley Lake, Norcross, and Peachtree Corners. For more information about Chamber, contact Beth Coffey at 678-906-4078 or bcoffey@southwestgwinnettchamber.org.
