October is Westminster Pantry Month for the Co-op
Be sure to pickup a list of needed items in the Narthex and remember to shop for the Co-op in October.
The SouthEast 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 year. Each month they serve 400-500 families, giving approximately 27,000 cans of food and $18,000 in financial assistance.
Westminster supports the SouthEast Gwinnett Co-op through food drives twice a year, as well as food donations year-round.
