North Gwinnett Co-Op - Help for the Holidays
Right here in our community, there are people who are not expecting the holidays to be very bright. They may have fallen on hard times, they may be ill, alone, or unable to work, and therefore unable to provide Christmas for their children. Clubs, churches, businesses, office groups, families, extended families and individuals are invited to experience the joy of giving this holiday by participating in the Co-Op’s Holiday Programs.
In early October the North Gwinnett Co-Op begins the vetting process & sign-ups for individuals & families in need of help during the holiday season. Prior to Thanksgiving we collect food to go into holiday meal boxes and a $20 gift card for their perishable items. Last year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Co-Op handed out over 1400 holiday meal boxes. Additionally, with the help of amazing volunteers and donors, the Co-Op sponsored 155 seniors and over 500 children for Christmas. The parents of the sponsored children were also invited to attend the Susan Roebuck Santa Shop, where they were able to pick out free toys for their children. Please see below to learn more about each giving opportunity.

WHAT WE DO!
AS TSL's, WE SERVE
- Displaced Students
GCA participates in the education of displaced students by providing specific support and supplies to help with their education. A “displaced” student is any student who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This could mean that a child is sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship; is living in motels, etc. due to the lack of alternative accommodations; is living in emergency or transitional shelters; or is awaiting foster care placement. If you are currently experiencing homelessness and are in need of assistance, please contact our Transitional Student Liaisons, Ja’Net Crayton (email@example.com),
- Migrant Students
GCA participates in the Migrant Education Program (MEP). Migrant students in GCA are also provided additional support and supplies to help with their education. Additionally, please contact your Transitional Student Liaisons for more information.
GCA offers TutorMe which is a free online 24/7 online tutoring service that covers 300 plus areas. This online platform allows students to connect with a live tutor right from their home. TutorMe’s network of over 10,000 verified tutors are ready to help with any academic question, no matter how big or small.
