RE/MAX Around Atlanta Collects Supplies for Gwinnett Families

Items accepted in Duluth office through May 31st

RE/MAX Around Atlanta joins Northeast Atlanta Metro Association of Realtors (NAMAR) members in five Gwinnett County real estate offices to collect food, infant clothing and funds for the Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry and Joseph’s Storehouse Clothes Closet.

Part of NAMAR’s “Come Forward to Give Back” initiative, the collection is ongoing through May 31, 2009. Volunteers may drop food, infant clothing or monetary donations at:
• RE/MAX Around Atlanta, 2280 Satellite Boulevard, Duluth;
• Coldwell Banker, 1970 Main Street E #D, Snellville;
• Keller Williams – 2170 Satellite Boulevard, Duluth;
• Metro Brokers – 3330 Satellite Boulevard, Duluth; or
• Prudential – 1551 Janmar Road, Snellville.

“We understand that the Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry served more than 1,100 families in January alone, which is more than twice the number they served in January of 2007,” says Sharon Dover, co-broker/owner of RE/MAX Around Atlanta. “They distribute more than 40,000 cans of food each month, and they provide limited financial assistance for utilities, prescriptions and emergency housing.”

The Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry, Inc. is an ecumenical organization sponsored and operated by an alliance of area churches, combining the resources of church members to meet the emergency needs of people in the community. For more information on the Ministry, visit or call 770-339-7887.
