Nonprofit Christmas wish list



As the holiday season commences, children aren’t the only ones making Christmas wish lists. Each year the Gwinnett Coalition of Health and Human Services compiles wish lists from local nonprofits of the things they need to help their organizations.

Today the Daily Post shares those with our readers,providing lists of needed items along with contact information for the various organizations. It’s our way of saying “Merry Christmas,” and it’s our hope that it will help those looking to make

charitable contributions as well as the organizations in need.
