Gwinnett Great Days of Service
The Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services, in partnership with the United Way of
North Metro, is proud to present the 12th annual Gwinnett Great Days of Service on Friday,
September 30 and Saturday October 1, 2011. This event engages thousands of volunteers in a day
of community service throughout Gwinnett County. Last year, over 95,000 volunteers participated,
including individuals from large corporations, schools, small businesses, church groups, and families, and
amazingly completed over 500 community service projects, making it one of the largest volunteer
initiatives in the country.
â€œUnited Way of Metropolitan Atlanta in Gwinnett is excited to partner with the Gwinnett Coalition
for Health and Human Services for Gwinnett Great Days of Service. Volunteerism is a central
theme to the work of United Way in our collective community efforts to help families and
individuals thrive while also working collaboratively with the organizations that provide the on-
ground support. Weâ€™re looking forward to plenty of quality volunteer service projects this yearâ€
says Demetrius Jordan, regional director of the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta.
Gwinnett Great Days of Service addresses specific needs in Gwinnett County by providing volunteers
to complete much-needed service projects for local non-profits, schools, and churches. These
collaborative projects build community while educating people from our community of the critical needs
around them and in their own backyards.
This event could not happen without the support of the community!
Please consider volunteering for this very worthy and fun cause. There are several ways for you, your
family and friends, and your co-workers to get involved:
- Sponsor a volunteer team from your business to complete a service project in the community i.e. landscaping, painting, light construction, etc.
- Conduct a food, toy, or school supply drive at your business for a local agency or school.
- Be a Gwinnett Great Days of Service Sponsor.
