Caring Hearts. Helping Hands.
Caring Hearts and Helping Hands in action for Day 2 of Great Days of Service.
This fall, members of the Gwinnett community came together once again for two days of service to neighbors in need at the 13th annual Gwinnett Great Days of Service on October 5th and 6th. Those caring hearts and helping hands worked on over 400 projects to complete over 300 projects with 75,000 volunteers and 300,000 hours contributing to one of the nation’s largest volunteer efforts. We can’t thank the volunteers and community enough for another great event this year.
Gwinnett County volunteers have been coming together for the past 13 years to make their community a better place to benefit local non-profit agencies that provide goods and services to people within the community who are struggling financially or emotionally and need assistance with basic needs such as food, shelter, medical services, prescription drugs, education, etc. Those non-profit agencies rely almost solely upon donations and volunteers and are struggling to make ends meet. They need your help. In previous years Gwinnett Great Days of Service volunteers from local businesses, church groups, schools and families have participated in projects that ranged from staffing community events, to painting and repairing buildings, installing playground sets and cleaning up nature trails.
