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.
