VOLUNTEER GWINNETT HOSTING VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION PARTY
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Nov. 8, 2019) — Join Volunteer Gwinnett for a day of celebration as the County gives back to those who give selflessly throughout the year. Gwinnett County Government volunteers and their families are invited to a Volunteer Appreciation Party Nov. 17 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Preservation Lawn at the Isaac Adair House, 15 South Clayton Street, Lawrenceville. The free event will feature games, food (while supplies last), entertainment, kids’ activities, department outreach tables, giveaways and more.
Volunteer Gwinnett, a countywide program, encourages residents to participate in service activities year-round. Gwinnett depends on volunteers to help the County provide residents with the best services and programs possible. “In 2018, Gwinnett had more than 1.6 million volunteer hours and 89,000 volunteers directly contributing to the excellent quality of life residents enjoy in our community,” said, Muriam Nafees, Volunteer Gwinnett coordinator. “We want to show our dedicated volunteers how much we appreciate them.”
Volunteering through County departments and elected offices provides residents the opportunity to be involved with their government operations. Volunteers are involved in an array of events and projects that directly impact the community, such as removing invasive species from park lands, picking out trash from rivers and lakes, going door to door to install smoke alarms, fostering animals from the Gwinnett Animal Shelter, delivering meals to home-bound seniors or instructing fitness and language classes.
RSVP to VolunteerGwinnett@gwinnettcounty.com by Nov. 13. Additional parking and shuttle pick-up will be located at the Gwinnett Annex Building at 750 South Perry Street, Lawrenceville.
