Charlie Giving Back to the Community
Founded by Mrs. Charlie Lewis and her family in 2010, the organization provides free meals to Ware County residents on a monthly basis. Over 23,400 grocery boxes have been distributed to families in Ware County to date. In addition to fresh groceries, CGBC seeks to supplement the needs of low-income families by providing back to school supplies in the fall, Clothes and Christmas gifts during the holidays and hygiene kits throughout the year to families in need. The Grocery Boxes for Seniors and Disabled Adults program provides door-to-door distribution of fresh produce and groceries every 4th Saturday of the Month. An average of 40 meals are delivered each month with over 2680 grocery boxes having been delivered since the inception of the program in 2010. Every December, CGBC hosts a Christmas Gift Distribution. We provide a gift shop and food baskets to help bring Christmas to 300 families that otherwise might not be able to celebrate the season’s bounty and blessings. Every August, the CGBC host a Back to School Giveaway. The annual giveaway provides students essentials in the form of book bags, various school supplies, including pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders and glue. Each year 300 backpacks are distributed to the community. Over 1500 backpacks have been distributed since the program began. Once a year the volunteers from the CGBC come together to honor the local police, emergency personnel and fire fighters by presenting an all day lunch appreciation. To extend love to those who are limited due to their health or aging. Every year on Valentine’s Day CGBC volunteers visit with the residents at the Hazelhurst Center, SunBride Care & Rehabilitation & Jeff Davis Hospital and to share a token of love. The volunteers bring gifts of food, snacks and blankets for all of the residents and spend the day visiting and socializing. The CGBC volunteers also provide gifts of appreciation to all of the staff of the facility.
