Sandy Carter, Public Affairs Department Co-Chair, announced that she recently met with the leaders and volunteers at Cumming Home Ministries regarding their charity pick-up program.

Cumming Home Ministries focuses on helping local Forsyth County men in need with various resources such as housing, food, support, etc.  They also have a thrift store located on Highway 20 with wonderful items. Please help in supporting this local non profit organization. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact Jan Koolhaas. They have a need for weekly volunteers to work a 4 hour shift in the thrift store.

Be Prepared for Bad Weather

SWC Delivers Stockings to Seniors


Public Affairs Department Co-Chair Sandy Carter led an effort between the Sawnee Woman’s Club and local children to prepare and deliver Christmas stocking gifts to area senior citizens. The group delivered 82 stockings to local nursing homes just before Christmas and also handed out cookies and sang Christmas carols with the residents.


Public Affairs Department Promotes Sheriff’s Program

The HOME ALONE FOR KIDS seminar, presented by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, will happen at the South Forsyth Precinct located at 2985 Ronald Reagan Boulevard on Tuesday, November 12th from 6:30-7:30pm.

It is designed for kids that are at the age when they find themselves HOME ALONE, between the ages of 11-16, and focus specifically on safe practices while they are at home by themselves. We have a number of attendees that have 7-10 year old children and the sheriff’s office is okay with them attending too. We also provide real life scenarios for the kids to review, and teach them how to safely
react to these situations.
