At our June County Committee meeting, we heard from Street Grace. We heard about the dangers of being on the street and the things children are forced to do when they are hungry. The presentation was eye-opening and has propelled us into action.
The Gwinnett GOP will be making sandwiches/lunch bags to feed hungry children in Gwinnett County so they can shift their focus from survival to finding a lasting means of supporting themselves and their families. We will be teaming up with Street Grace and Action Ministries to deliver these lunches on Friday, June 14th.
All gave some; some gave all.
Memorial Day marks the traditional kick off to summer for Americans. No matter how you are spending your Holiday Weekend, remember to take a few minutes to reflect on the reason for the Holiday and honor the brave men and women who gave their all to protect the freedoms we hold so dear. A simple “Thank You” doesn’t adequately convey the gratitude we feel or the respect we owe.
Be with your friends and families today. Enjoy the cook-outs, fireworks, beach trips, concerts, old war movies and fly Old Glory proudly. For these activities are what our military of yesterday and today fought for and remain ever vigilant to protect.

Buzz Brockway and Renee Unterman to Talk About Child Trafficking At Our May County Committee Meeting
Join us at the County Committee meeting on May 9th to get some insight on child sex trafficking in Georgia, and the “Georgia’s Not Buying It” program set up by the Georgia Attorney General’s office from special guests Senator Renee Unterman and Representative Buzz Brockway. Child exploitation has become a major problem in recent years, especially in Georgia. Renee and Buzz have sponsored several pieces of legislation aimed at improving child welfare, and they have become a major voice in Georgia against this practice.
In addition, representatives from Street Grace and Youth Spark, both organizations which battle child exploitation, will also be in attendance with opportunities for members of the Gwinnett GOP to get involved in these worthy causes.
