Gwinnett Great Days of Service has pivoted its approach to collection drives. A collection drive is where individuals, civic groups, churches, businesses, nonprofits, families, schools, universities, and healthcare organizations host an event collecting essential items for a local nonprofit in need. While we are limiting the amount and variety of projects in 2021, there is still a need for volunteers during Gwinnett Great Days of Service.

Where do I get my t-shirts?

Where do I get my t-shirts?

From 2000 to 2019, Gwinnett Great Days of Service has provided t-shirts, free of charge, to volunteers, project leaders, sponsors, etc. Due to the limited scope of this year's event, we will not be creating new t-shirts; instead, we have vintage t-shirts from past years. Visit the T-shirts page to see which ones are available. Contact a Gwinnett Great Days of Service Team member at gdos@gwinnettcoalition.org to check inventory and arrange a pickup.
