LAKE LANIER ISLANDS - This summer, in an effort to promote community involvement, Lake Lanier Islands has hosted Give Back Thursdays at its water park.

Earlier in the season, visitors were asked to bring in five canned food items for the Georgia Mountain Food Bank and, in return, receive half off the regular price admission per person. Over the course of just three weeks, the resort reports collecting 5,887 pounds of canned goods to benefit the Gainesville-based non-profit.

For Give Back Thursdays on July 17 and 24, the Resort asked guests to bring in a grocery bag filled with new school supplies or a new back pack in order to benefit school children in need through the North Gwinnett Co-op.

For its final Give Back Thursdays of the 2014 season, the resort is asking guests to bring in a box or bag filled with gently used clothes on July 31 and August 7 to benefit Goodwill of North Georgia. Again, guests who do so will receive half off the admission to the water park.
