On November 14th, Chafin Communities kicked off the holiday season with a charity luncheon to honor both the North Gwinnett Co-Op and the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. Each organization was honored with a $10,000 donation.
Throughout the month of October, Chafin Communities staff rallied to collect over 600 lbs of food for the pantry. The North Gwinnett Co-Op serves the communities of BUFORD, SUGAR HILL, SUWANEE & THE GWINNETT COUNTY PORTIONS OF AUBURN, BETHLEHEM, BRASELTON & HOSCHTON ONLY.
The North Gwinnett Cooperative was formed in 1991 as a ministry that provides food, clothing, financial assistance and spiritual support to those in need in the Buford, Suwanee, and Sugar Hill communities. Originally formed by Sugar Hill United Methodist Church in 1991, the ministry is now supported by additional congregations, area businesses, civic organizations, schools and individuals who generously donate food, clothing, financial resources, and committed volunteer efforts. The North Gwinnett Cooperative is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Throughout November and December Chafin Communities will be collecting new, unwrapped toys. The Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.
