The Gwinnett Municipal Association kicks off their February “Can Do” Campaign

The Gwinnett Municipal Association (GwMA) is kicking off their “Can Do” canned goods collection drive for the month of February.  The “CAN” Do project is part of the GwMA’s on-going project to fight hunger in our local communities. The goal is to support local food co-ops and pantries by collecting canned foods and dry grocery staples at municipal events throughout the year.

Essential items needed through the “CAN” Do effort include: canned goods and dry foods such as rice and beans; canned meats (luncheon meat and tuna); personal hygiene items including toothpaste, brushes, shampoo, soap, deodorant; paper goods; and cleaning products such as dish and laundry detergents. (Please do not donate any glass container items that may break or items that are beyond their expiration date)

City of Duluth

“CAN” Do activities in the City of Duluth include a Feb. 12 Valentine’s Dance at Bunten Road Park (3180 Bunten Road) and a drawing that day as well for all that bring canned goods.
