SHERIFF KEYBO TAYLOR'S 3RD ANNUAL
THANKSGIVING FOOD GIVEAWAY
Organized by the Gwinnett County
Sheriff’s Office Community Outreach Section
The 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Food Giveaway served as a means to connect with the community, alleviate food insecurity, and contribute to a memorable Thanksgiving holiday. A total of 3,661 food boxes and proteins were distributed to families in need, with an additional 479 food items provided to local ministries and churches. This would not have been possible without the partners and sponsors who generously contributed to this cause, as well as the numerous volunteers from both the community and the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office.
