Great Days of Service

This week is Gwinnett County's Great Days of Service. For our service project I ask that the faculty, staff, students and parents donate clothes, non-perishable food items, hair care products, school supplies, and household cleaning products. These items can be put in the donation boxes in the main lobby or they can be brought to the Counselor's Office.

These items will be distributed to families in need.

*Please be advised that clothes will not go the Children's Shelter for they are fully equipped with enough brand new clothing.
