The North Gwinnett Co-Op hosted a “Back to School Bash” on July 29th from 9am-4pm. Over 200 children received their book bags during the Bash. Parents pre-registered for school supplies and attended the Bash to pick up their book bags. The Gwinnett Co. Fire Department and Police Department had trucks and equipment during the Bash for the children to view. The Gwinnett Police Department and SafeKids did courtesy car seat checks for families with small children. Children also enjoyed face painting, games and snacks.
Book bags and school supplies were donated by the families and friends of the Co-Op, including, Heraeus, MTI Baths, Sugar Hill Church, Gwinnett Church, Level Creek UMC, Buford Presbyterian Church, Liberty Mutual, Sugar Hill UMC and many more. Lake Lanier Islands also provided discounted admission to LanierWorld on two days for guests who donated school supplies.
