In order to help prepare students to return to school, the Gwinnett County Government is partnering with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity for a community fair and back-to-school giveaway on Saturday, July 24. The event will take place from 9:00 am to noon at Best Friend Park in Norcross.
Students are invited to enjoy free food and fun activities, and meet Gwinnett County government employees who serve you every day. The first 50 kids are guaranteed to receive a free backpack filled with school supplies!
In addition, the Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale County Health Departments will be onsite administering free COVID-19 vaccines with no appointment necessary. Best Friend Park is located at 6224 Jimmy Carter Boulevard in Norcross.
