LFCC will host a Drive-Thru Donation Drive to benefit the children of our community on Sunday evening November 22 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. We invite our church family to bring donations as well as publicize the Drive to friends and neighbors who might want to participate. If you want to collect items in your neighborhood and deliver them, please do. Anyone may come by and drop off donations. This will be a no touch drive through. Place the items you want to donate in the trunk or hatch of your car. Drive by, open the trunk, and someone will retrieve your donations. Masks should be worn by everyone inside and outside of cars at the drop off point.
Our Drive-Thru Donation Drive will benefit the following:
- NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH – This organization is based in Lawrenceville and provides food bags for school children on weekends, during school vacations, and during the summer. These are students usually on free and reduced lunch who depend on the breakfast and lunch they get at school during the week. Nothing But The Truth currently supports about 28 schools in Gwinnett County. The food bags provide students with meals they might not otherwise get on weekends and school holidays. Since many children are not currently in school due to digital learning, many of these bags are being delivered by Nothing But the Truth to children in their neighborhoods this school year. The items they are requesting right now are protein items such as individual servings of spaghetti and ravioli, macaroni and cheese, canned meat, and peanut butter and items often requested by the children for breakfast such as pop-tarts and granola bars.
- CEDAR HILL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL – Our church usually helps with Christmas gifts for students at Cedar Hill Elementary School, one of our school neighbors, every year. Normally, they provide information about families, and we shop for them. Since that is not possible during the pandemic, this year they are collecting gift cards for families in need at their school for the holidays. The items they are requesting are gift cards from Walmart or Target since families can purchase either groceries or holiday gifts at either of these stores. They request that gift cards be in increments of $25.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Thompson. Thanks so much for your help!
