1 in 7 Americans need Food Assistance programs

Although too many Americans the economy appears to be stronger now and more people are back at work the reality for many families is just the opposite. 1 in 7, over 14% or to put it another way over 50 million Americans are relying on assistance just to eat. Many individuals and families who were struck hard by the recession are simply being left behind. They are all turning to programs like The Quinn House in order to feed themselves and their families. The Quinn House staff and guests spend most of their work week fulfilling requests for food assistance. We would like to do more, to help more however we need more help from the community in the form of monetary donations and canned/non-perishable food drives. If you or your organization can help us meet this great need please call our office at (770) 962-0470. Please see this report from National Geographic Daily News for more information.

Maxwell High Students A Legacy of Giving

2014 marks the 16th year that students at Maxwell High have taken on the task of brightening the Christmas mornings of some 80 Gwinnett County children. The students do all of the fund raising, buying and delivering of the presents under the supervision of advisors whom are all teachers at the school. They show up at The Quinn House before Christmas with vehicle after vehicle filled with presents while the students are filled with the enthusiasm of Santa's elves and sporting Christmas sweaters and Santa hats. It is truly a sight to behold. The students never get to witness the children's delight on Christmas morning making this gift one of true love and faith.  The Gwinnett Daily Post featured a story recently about this outpouring of love and you may read the article and view the video here.

Bridlegate Gives Again and Again

This is the result of the  Bridlegate Gives Charity Drive. Their subdivision has done this since around 2002. At first it was just food, then they added the kids. Each block would take a child's list and try to fill it. That grew more difficult because some of the items on their lists were more than some of the parents here could afford to spend on their own children.

 So Brenda Delauder talked to Carol Quinn and asked if they could just give toys or clothes without a list. We would be sure all were new items. She was thrilled. She said there was such a need for those "filler" gifts.... of course some of our "filler gifts" are really, really nice.
