Gwinnett location participating in Georgia Cancer Specialists’ Totes 2 Tots Drive

The 12th annual Totes 2 Tots suitcase drive, sponsored by Georgia Cancer Specialists and Northside Hospital, will take place Friday, Jan. 17.

Georgia Cancer Specialists locations will be collecting donations of new or nearly new backpacks and kid-size suitcases for foster children.

Donations can be dropped off between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Georgia Cancer Specialists’ Gwinnett branch at 698 Duluth Highway, Suite 201, in Lawrenceville.

Originally held on Martin Luther King Day, the event is now held the preceding Friday.

“As the physicians and staff of Georgia Cancer Specialists, we look forward to honoring Dr Martin Luther King’s memory for the 12th consecutive year,” said Dr. Cheryl Jones, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer for Georgia Cancer Specialists. “This is the major community service project for GCS and it demonstrates our commitment to the foster children and to their future success in their communities.”

Donations collected in Gwinnett will be distributed in the area.
