The team here at Suwanee Magazine has been working on a special project and we need your help! It feels like every day when we turn on the TV we’re inundated with bad, stressful news. So we decided that we want to spread some good news, which is how Good News Gwinnett came to be. Through this project, Suwanee Magazine will share good news to the people of Gwinnett County through our social media channels as a way to shine a light on the community and its amazing individuals. During this time of crisis, in which we’ve been mandated to stay home to stay safe, we’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support our community has shown local businesses, healthcare workers, restaurants and everyone who has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order for this project to be successful, Suwanee Magazine needs the help of the community to find all the good news that’s happening around us. We’re looking for every type of good news — big and small. This includes larger stories sweeping media outlets such as Lawrenceville’s Universal Joint restaurant turning into a grocery store stocked with in-need items and Duluth’s Good Word Brewing turning into a soup kitchen to help feed its community. We are looking for feel-good stories such as when local elementary school teachers hosted a parade through students’ neighborhoods as well as more personal feats like kids learning to sew during quarantine and creating face masks to donate to healthcare workers. Did your child learn a new skill during this time? Maybe they learned their ABCs, learned to ride a bike, or baked their first cake? We want to know!
