‘A really good time’ — North Gwinnett Co-op hands out backpacks to students in need

When it rains, it pours. No one knows that better than Kim Phillips, executive director of the North Gwinnett Co-op in Buford.

Phillips has known the figurative side of that phrase since the COVID-19 crisis struck in March. This week she experienced the literal side of it when the skies opened with a torrential downpour jus as the co-op’s annual Book Bag Bash was ready to start.
