Lawrenceville, GA (24 July 2012)-- As one of the hottest Julys in memory comes to an end, so does the opportunity to submit your project for this year’s Great Days of Service. On October 5th and 6th, something close to 80,000 Gwinnett citizens donate their support to local charities, non-profits, schools, churches, organizations and more for this two day event. Do you belong to a charity, non-profit, school, church, organization or other that is in need of a new coat of paint, landscaping, cleaning or just about anything else? If this is you, what are you waiting for?
Go to GwinnettGreatDaysOfService.org and click on the Projects and Volunteer tab to download the application. We even have a list of ideas if you can’t quite figure out what you want to do. So far, we have more than 140 projects lined up for this year, making it one of the biggest years ever. We are looking for projects that can take anywhere from 3 to 150 volunteers, so get creative. If you are still stuck, the lovely Ms. Suzy Bus (770-995-3339) will work with you to finalize the details.
