StreetWise Georgia conducts many holiday programs and special events throughout the year. From passing out backpacks before school starts to distributing dresses before prom arrives, StreetWise desires to extravagantly bless every client that comes through.

Our events are focused on filling practical needs, as well as ministering to the spiritual needs of each family in attendance. For some families, this is the one message of hope that they will receive all year, so we take every opportunity to tell of the Lord and His love!

Interested in attending an event? Please call 678-985-9952 Monday through Thursday 10:15am to 3:00pm to register or receive more information.

Pack-the-Bus

Stuff-the-Bus

The StreetWise bus comes to a local store and StreetWise volunteers provide recommendations of needed items, customers purchase items to donate, and volunteers load the items on the bus. Our goal, with assistance from the community, is to Stuff-the-Bus.

Volunteer Responsibilities:  greet store customers, hand out flyers, offer information on donation items needed, sort donations in bus

Block Party

Block Parties

StreetWise Block Parties are held throughout the area to bring the community a good time and Good News. These parties are full of laughter, games, treats, food, music and fun.

Volunteer Responsibilities: complete registration, host games, have fun, affirm guests in Christ’s love

Prom Starganza

Prom Starganza

StreetWise Georgia partners with The Gwinnett County Department of Family and Child Services(DFCS) to make a dream come true for young women and men who could not otherwise attend their prom. Gently-used prom dresses and suits are collected by donation prior to the event. Ladies and gentlemen come in at their appointed times and receive assistance from StreetWise Volunteers as they pick out everything they will need for prom. The young women can then have their hair styled, nails painted and makeup applied, all in time to have their pictures taken! The Gospel is thoroughly communicated to each student as they receive attentive care and are verbally presented with the truth of God’s love for them.

Volunteer Responsibilities: manage sign-in, set up, break down, help young ladies and men select prom attire, style hair, apply make-up, manicure nails, alter dresses

Christmas Programs

Christmas Birthday Party for Jesus & Adopt-a-Family Program

Each December StreetWise Georgia gathers to celebrate the greatest gift ever given: Jesus!

Birthday Party for Jesus

At Christmastime, StreetWise gives every child a gift to unwrap and at one of our largest events of the year the families and children get to know the love of Christ!

Adopt-a-Family Program

To many of us, Christmas delivers food, fun and family time. For others, however, holidays present no more than a nagging reminder of lack. Ever wanted to share your blessings with those less fortunate, but just didn’t know how? The StreetWise Adopt-a-Family Program makes it easy!

Volunteer Responsibilities: wrap gifts, register and usher guests, counsel those who give their lives to Christ
