Join Gwinnett Ballet Theatre as we give back to the community with our holiday canned food drive for the North Gwinnett Co-op. This year there is a special need for laundry detergent, zip lock bags, boxed cereal and pasta. Bring your donation to the theater and we will help distribute it those in need.
