Janabelle 2 years, 11 months ago on North Gwinnett Cooperative opens new headquarters


I am familiar with this organization and willing to answer a few of your questions. No, money is not just given out. Income is checked, verified and they must "qualify" to receive aide. The economy is bad... which has created severe situations for some such as: loss of jobs or cuts in pay. The co-op has help many families through their own crisis in this economy which, sometimes resulted in the same family volunteering to help at the co-op after they have gotten back on their feet. Every situation is different. This is a wonderful organization that is making every effort not to just be a hand out organization but a helping hand organization. I hope this answers a few questions for you.
