The Hawks and State Farm took existing rooms near the courts at the Lucky Shoals recreation center and transformed them into the new Good Neighbor Center, the first in Gwinnett and second to open this year. The Lucky Shoals Good Neighbor Center has a new entertainment area, a reading nook with iPads, a dedicated classroom space, TVs and video game consoles. The Hawks and State Farm have also committed to providing programming at the center. 

At the Wednesday grand opening, 50 kids were surprised with free custom basketball jerseys, backpacks and other giveaways, according to a State Farm release. The Lucky Shoals courts were the 24th and 25th to be renovated by the Hawks.
