Gwinnett Great Days of Service 
This event is a great opportunity for Gwinnett County and our campus to work together! We will be volunteering at the community garden in uplifting its image and inviting our Gwinnett County neighbors. This is a great way to aid the community and volunteer. We will be painting the shed, tilling the ground, building scarecrows, building compost bins, and building flowerbeds. This is a great opportunity to make friends and build connections with faculty and staff. Let us come together and make a difference!
