Giving Back To The Community
We love giving back to the community because we believe a community is only as strong as the people in it. Below are some non-profits that are important to us.
Founded in 2001 by a group of like-minded community leaders, educators, business partners, and parents, the North Gwinnett Schools Foundation, or NGSF, is the "education booster club" for the six schools of the North Gwinnett Cluster, part of Gwinnett County Public Schools in the state of Georgia.
The North Gwinnett Schools Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to funding grants and providing administration for various scholarships that benefit the students of the North Gwinnett cluster.
The Foundation is made up of parents, grandparents, educators, community leaders, and business partners who are working to support the efforts of teachers who are passionate about giving every student the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential. www.northgwinnettschoolsfoundation.org
The North Gwinnett Co-Operative Ministries represents what communities can do when they work together by being a resource of assistance to people in the Buford, Sugar Hill and Suwanee areas. The Co-Op is an efficient operation with over 150+ well trained committed volunteers that aid in assisting senior citizens on fixed incomes, families with lost or reduced income, and homeless individuals & families. We help in times of need by bridging critical gaps so that the residents of our community can recover. We strive to make sure that no child or adult in our community goes to bed hungry!
The North Gwinnett Cooperative was formed in 1991 as a ministry that provides food, clothing, financial assistance and spiritual support to those in need in the Buford, Suwanee, and Sugar Hill communities. Originally formed by Sugar Hill United Methodist Church in 1991, the ministry is now supported by additional congregations, area businesses, civic organizations, schools and individuals who generously donate food, clothing, financial resources, and committed volunteer efforts. www.northgwinnettcoop.org
Spread out over 310 peaceful acres in the Chestnut Mountain community of Flowery Branch, Georgia, Eagle Ranch helps make life better for children and families going through a crisis. Our unique community includes homes, recreational facilities, and a SACS-accredited school. Boys and girls come to live here, and are given the space and time they need to work through their struggles. Their families stay connected and actively involved during their child’s stay.
Our Christian program uses an integrated approach that models homelife, emphasizes education and incorporates multi-faceted counseling. Our aim is for renewal: of the child’s individual purpose and identity; of positive relationships among family members; and of hope for a more promising future for everyone we serve. www.eagleranch.org
