When digital learning days began for students in Gwinnett County, Preface, an early childhood literacy advocacy group, vowed to work toward helping keep them safe with hand sanitizer. The initial donor provided hundreds of bottles to be distributed with free school-provided meals.

This time around, the nonprofit partnered with another charity, Good Samaritan in Norcross to provide hand sanitizer to families visiting the health center.

A tent was set up outside the facility to welcome families and allow clients to practice social distancing.

In total Good Samaritan gave away 300 bottles of sanitizer.

“We here at Preface are so excited to be able to partner with Good Samaritan Health Center of Gwinnett to continue supporting our neighbors during these uncertain times,” said Jonathan “JT” Wu, founder and executive director of Preface. “Their mission of supporting and empowering folks through healthcare delivery to underserved communities is well aligned with our drive to foster opportunity for the next generation.”

Additionally, Good Sam is providing healthcare resources such as masks to other clinics in the area that are in need.
