(Lawrenceville, Ga., Aug. 18, 2011) The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a resolution to implement a countywide volunteer program, establishing a goal to reach one million volunteer hours per year by 2015. While some departments already have active volunteer programs in place, the comprehensive Volunteer Gwinnett program was developed in response to an Engage Gwinnett committee recommendation to engage residents in volunteer activities to support government operations and potentially save money.
