Food Distribution at the J.M. Tull-Gwinnett Family YMCA 

It was all hands on deck last weekend at the J.M. TullGwinnett YMCAThanks to our amazing volunteers, partners and staff, we were able to pack and deliver approximately 14,000 pounds of food to 463 families. Each of these families received 2 bags of food, a large box of fresh produce, plus diapers and wipes as needed. Thank you to Maria Peifer — Y Volunteer of the Year — and her team from Georgia United Credit Union, as well as everyone else who came to help with food distribution! And thank you to our nonprofit, corporate, and government partners that helped make it possible for us to have such an impact in our community, including The Latin American Association, Helping Mamas, Gwinnett County, Amerigroup, WellCare, CareSource, MedLink, Peach State Health Plan, and Diaz FoodsThank you for helping to change lives through the Y!
