"This year, we are pivoting to meet the challenges presented by the global pandemic," said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful. "Our neighbors need our help and we want to meet those needs. We're hoping that everyone who has ever taken part in our contribution to Great Days of Service in the past will take part in a new way this year so we can collect an unimaginable amount of food as a heartwarming show of that Gwinnett County spirit."

Between October 1-22, GC&B will be accepting donations at the One Justice Square Building at 446 West Crogan Street in Lawrenceville. Between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, donors can simply bring their donations into the lobby and place them in clearly marked collection bins or call (770) 822-5187 to have donations collected curbside. GC&B asks that anyone who wishes to have their donation collected curbside to please call to schedule a time and date.
"Thank you in advance to everyone who chooses to support these efforts geared toward neighbors helping neighbors," added Marlatt. "Please help us spread the word and convince your friends, family members, neighbors and co-workers to take part in Great Days of Service 2020. You may even want to set up a collection of your own at your school, office or neighborhood, and then drop those collections off to us and we'll see that they get to front line service providers. We can't WAIT to see what you are able to help us do for the community that we love!"
