The Lawrenceville Co-op
What We Do for Our Clients: We assist those in need by providing food, limited emergency financial assistance for utilities and prescription drugs. We also offer assistance by connecting those in need with various helping sources in the community. We seek to help clients identify ways to achieve self-sufficiency.
"For I was hungry and you gave me food." Matthew 25:35
The Southeast Gwinnett Cooperative Ministry
The SE Gwinnett Co-Op is a non-profit organization created to support those in our local community in need of food and financial assistance with utilities and medication. This ministry is operated 100% through donations and is staffed by volunteers.
As the pain of a strained economy has put many in our community in a financially vulnerable position, the Co-op has experienced a sharp increase in the number client visits over the past six months. Each month we serve 400-500 families, giving approximately 27,000 cans of food and $18.000 in financial assistance. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
