Our Community


It is the combined efforts of our community that makes Back to School Back Pack Program a success since 2007!

WheSteKendrickExecutive General Manager of Infiniti of Gwinnett, found out that Gwinnett County would have more than 1,400 homeless children attending school, he asked his employees if they could all get behind at effort to provide these children with something that would give them hope, trust and self esteem for the future. From this, the Infiniti of Gwinnett Back to School Back Pack Program was launched.
With the help of employees from Infiniti of Gwinnett and Subaru of Gwinnett, other local dealerships, and citizens within and outside Gwinnett County, the program has been able to supply more than 5,000 Back Packs and School Supplies to Gwinnett County homeless and needy children.
In 2007, the company held a raffle for an inclusive six-night/seven-day vacation to raise funds. In 2008 we added two fund-raisers including a charity fashion show and a charity golf classic. In 2009 a raffle was for an inclusive six-night/seven-day trip including first class round-trip airfare to the Ritz Carlton in Naples, FL.  In 2010 we offered a cruise on Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Sea, charity golf classic and a wine and shoe event with the Gwinnett Gladiators. In 2011 we enjoyed holding a fundraiser at Coolray field with the Gwinnett Braves, Christmas in July with the Arena Tavern, a Silent Auction, and our charity golf classic at Hamilton Mill.
This year the program will include a charity golf classic at Lake Lanier Island on June 12th.  The dealerships will also be offering a 6 night 5 day Carnival Cruise voucher, good for 18 months to cruise on your vacation time. The raffle tickets will be offered at $25 each and the drawing will be held on August 1st at 1pm in the showroom at Infiniti of Gwinnett.

With the help of employees from Infiniti of Gwinnett and Subaru of Gwinnett, other local dealerships, and citizens within and outside Gwinnett County, the program has raised over $125,000 and been able to supply more than 6,750 Back Packs and School Supplies to Gwinnett County homeless and needy children.
