LAA receives G-Braves grant

LAWRENCEVILLE — The Latin American Association was the recipient of the Gwinnett Braves August grant, officials recently announced.

The $1,000 grant was used to buy supplies for the LAA’s second annual Back to School Supplies Drive.

Fully staffed by volunteers led by LAA’s director of the youth and volunteer program, the Back to School Supplies Drive was held at LAA’s main building before the school year started. The event was attended by nearly 1,000 children who “shopped” with their parents for free school supplies that included backpacks, notebooks, folders, crayons, pencils and pens.

The G-Braves will honor the LAA during an in-game presentation on Sunday when the team takes on the Norfolk Tides at 2:05 p.m. Volunteers, staff and families served by LAA will be in attendance and are invited to a pregame Q&A with a G-Braves player.

Organizations interested in applying for a Gwinnett Braves grant can visit the Community page on for more information.
