Suwanee Business Alliance has decided to continue our summer tradition of collecting food items for the children of Gwinnett via the Nothing but the Truth charity.
There will be a food collection box at the July meeting so please bring your food items with you!
Nothing but the Truth
Meeting Others Where They Are!
Nothing but the Truth provides “Weekend Food Bags” for over 900 children weekly in 43 local elementary schools. Students have been identified by their school counselors as being in need of additional food for the weekend. These children participate in the Free/Reduced Lunch Program during the week but struggle over the weekends. Bags are sent home with the kids every Friday in their backpack and include easy-open/self-serve foods.
SBA will be collecting food for Nothing But the Truth until the end July. The items that are in most need are:
*Small individual boxes of cereal
*Individual fruit/applesauce cups
This is our second annual SBA outing for members and their family/guests only. We will be attending the Gwinnett Stripers to cheer on our hometown team who will be playing the Rochester Red Wings. The game starts at 7:05 p.m. with fireworks afterwards.
We'll have a tent set up with refreshments and beverages close to the stadium before 5:00 p.m. for tailgating so come early. After 5:00 p.m. the cost to park will be $5.00 per car. The Suwanee Business Alliance will pay the entrance fee for all members and their family members/guests who are registered in advance. So be sure to get your new or lapsed membership fees paid beforehand and register to attend! Registration ends on July 12th!
We have invited the Sugar Hill Business Alliance to join us, too, so it is sure to be a party!
