  • SBG Buford Thanksgiving Food Collection


    Straight Blast Gym is collecting and donating food for local families in the Buford area

    The students and athletes of Straight Blast Gym Buford have a rich tradition of stepping up to and donating their time and money when called upon if they know that it will help those in need. From donating to women with breast cancer to help them get treatment, to bringing in toys for children at Christmas, we are always incredibly grateful and amazed at the generosity displayed by our tribe.

    From November 15th-20th, we are asking that those who are able to bring in canned and non-perishable food items in order to help local Buford families to have a good Thanksgiving. All collected items will be donated to the North Gwinnett Co-Op; a local 501c3 that SBG Buford has been working with for 5+ years.

    The following items are in high demand by the North Gwinnett Co-Op:

    Canned Pineapple
    Canned Peaches
    Canned Pears
    Fruit Cocktail
    Boxed Cereal
    Tomato Paste
    Tomato Sauce
    Diced Tomatoes
    Spaghetti Sauce
    Black Beans
    Beef Stew
    Paper Towels
    Toilet Paper
    Tooth Brushes
    Feminine Pads
    Bar Soap
    Dish Soap
    Laundry Detergent
    Cornbread Mix
    Muffin Mixes

    The items listed above are not exclusively what is needed, and the Co-Op will gladly accept any food or household items that you are willing to donate.

    Donated items can be dropped off in the lobby of Straight Blast Gym Buford between Monday, November 15th – Saturday, November 20th. The items collected will be dropped off at the North Gwinnett Co-Op on Monday, November 22nd.
