One of the largest volunteer initiatives in the United States, Gwinnett Great Days of Service enables local non-profit organizations, schools and churches to enhance their services in the community. “I had such a good time working with the volunteers from the Gwinnett Great Days of Service. Thank you so much to the amazing volunteers from Gwinnett Technical College and the surrounding community that volunteered their time and energy at Annandale Village today. Volunteers painted the exterior of one of our residential houses, built and painted bird houses with our Villagers, and took several Villagers on a bike ride around campus. They were terrific! Gwinnett Days of Service is a day on, not a day off. Thanks to the team at the Gwinnett Coalition for putting on this great effort. I am so inspired by the event, that I will be involved as a volunteer this year!”# says Barbara Huffman.
