(Lawrenceville, Georgia) The festive season is here, and the Gwinnett County Police Department is working to ensure families get the support they need during the holidays.
The Gwinnett Police Records Unit will collaborate with Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church (HMUMC) Food Pantry for a food drive to help our citizens in need during the holidays. Residents are encouraged to drop off donations Monday, November 15 through Monday, December 13, during normal business hours.
