The Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services in partnership with the United Way of North Metro presents the 12th Annual Gwinnett Great Days of Service scheduled for September 30 and October 1. This remarkable 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!

“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.

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.
