The Gwinnett Coalition Announces it’s Partnership with the United Way for the 12th Annual Gwinnett Great Days of Service

The Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services has partnered with United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta to host the 12th annual Gwinnett Great Days of Service this year on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. The event is designed to engage the community through volunteer time, sponsorships, and donations to support local community service projects. This is one of the largest volunteer initiatives in the country and addresses the critical project needs of nonprofits and schools in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

The United Way promotes change and advocacy for a wide range of issues including homelessness, income, health, education and other critical needs. The United Way also acts a springboard for volunteer opportunities throughout the metro region. This partnership comes at a time when United Way kicks of its annual campaign which will be held on Tuesday, September 13th at the Gwinnett Place Marriott.

“United 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. We’re looking forward to plenty of quality volunteer service projects this year” says Demetrius Jordan, Regional Director of United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta.

Those who wish to volunteer can do so individually, as a group, or with a company. Projects are widely varied and are based on location, interest area, or by number of volunteers needed. Project registration will take place on August 15 through September 23. For more information, please visit www.gwinnettgreatdaysofservice.org.
