We'll answer the second question first: what's in it for us is the same that is in it for you, the opportunity to give back to our community. This website is our way of helping the people of Gwinnett County. Life is simply better when we all help each other in some way. The Golden Rule describes it pretty well: do unto others as you want them to do unto you. We have all needed help from someone at some time, right? (If you said no, I hope your mother didn't hear you). So if we are able, let's help others in return.
We all have unique talents we can contribute in some way, and these talents are all equally important in God's plan.
We haven't forgotten to answer the first question: we created VolunteerGwinnett.com to collect various volunteer and donation opportunities county-wide and allow you to find them all in one place. It began with County government opportunities and soon expanded to non-profit organizations. All the information on VolunteerGwinnett.com is available on the Internet if you want to search for it; we put it here, and the Internet makes it available and convenient to access 24/7. We hope this compilation makes it easier to find the right opportunity for you. If you find something interesting, you can visit their website via a link in the listing, send an email, make a call, and get involved.
And it's absolutely true that you will get as much or more out of it as those you help!
