When did Great Days of Service start?
Great Days started in 1999 to raise awareness of local community services and their needs. This was designed to make opportunities available to local residents to volunteer their time and talents and learn of resources provided in Gwinnett. We have been honored to have the community’s continued support to making a difference for the past 21 years and we look forward to another great year in 2020!
Can I volunteer as an individual or do I need a team?
Great Days of Service accepts individuals, corporate teams, families and anyone who wants to participate. As an individual, you may be put with a volunteer team or have an opportunity to serve in a specific task.
What’s the cost?
There is no cost to participate – we provide most of the supplies for the projects and require in-kind and cash donations to accomplish this. We do encourage volunteers to bring their own work gloves and get ready to get dirty!
Can children volunteer?
Many of the agencies we work with allow children to volunteer and ask that they be accompanied by an adult.
Is it an all day event?
Gwinnett Great Days of Service is over two days: Friday, October 23rd from 9-1 and Saturday, October 24th from 9-1. Most of our projects begin and end during those times though a few may go longer. We will work with you to endure the project fits your group, your company team, or your family and expectations are known.
What happens if it rains?
We are rain or shine for our event! We can share some great stories of teams who still made the project work despite the weather. It is Georgia, so you never know what to expect in October. We hope you’ll make memories with us, regardless of the meterologist’s forecast. If projects can’t be completed, we will help scheduled a make-up session.
