In celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Day, Gwinnett County is partnering with the United Ebony Society to host a drive-thru donation drive on Saturday, Jan. 16 to collect items for senior nursing facilities and homeless outreach organizations. The event, scheduled ahead of the King holiday on Jan. 18, will be held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Moore Middle School, 1221 Lawrenceville Highway in Lawrenceville.
The weekend will continue with two virtual events held Jan. 17 and 18, both starting at 1 p.m.
Residents are also invited to participate in the Martin Luther King Day of Service by signing up through Volunteer Gwinnett for one of several service projects around the County.
County offices will be closed on the holiday, with the exception of sanitation and recycling collection and public safety operations. Offices will reopen Jan. 19. A Magistrate Court judge will be available at the Gwinnett County Detention Center during the holiday.
