Volunteers: Putting Time and Talents to Good Use

The adage “when you want to get something done, ask a busy person to do it” came to mind last month while I was attending a volunteer recognition program at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. Our Department of Community Services honored 32 individuals and 48 groups who volunteered a total of 875,000 hours in the health, senior services, animal control, elections, and parks and recreation divisions. The other 11 County departments and many elected officials’ offices use volunteers, too.

Department of Community Services Director, Tina Fleming; Deputy Director, Blake Hawkins; Lifetime Achievement Award Shining Star, Lois Allen; and Deputy Director, Mark Patterson at the Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony held Thurs., April 19, 2018 at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse.
