Recently, 58 Primerica Home Office employees gathered for the 2015 Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services Great Days of Service project. This year, Primerica’s Great Days event benefitted the Wishes 4 Me Foundation. Founded as a non-profit organization on the belief that giving up is never an option, Wishes 4 Me works to assist adults who are disabled to live more active, involved and rewarding lives. Wishes 4 Me helps in providing or locating medical equipment, providing specialized housing and assisting with support groups.

In addition to their stellar personal service efforts, Primerica Home Office workers participate in the Gwinnett County, GA, Great Day of Service every year. At the end of October, a team of workers volunteered at the Lawrenceville Housing Authority, an organization that offers affordable rental units to low-income families. At the Rich Martin Property, employees installed 78 pairs of shutters on the units, pressured washed homes, planted more than 100 shrubs, built a pergola for the playground area and repaired two retaining walls.

“The Great Days of Service project is special to Primerica volunteers,” says Laura Gibbs, AVP of Community Service. “We completed all of our projects, and it was due to the enthusiasm and take-charge attitude of our volunteers.”

Karen Fine, Primerica EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer enthused, “I was so proud of our team and the effort they put forth to upgrade and beautify the residents’ homes.”

The Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services recently held its 13th annual Great Days of Service, a two-day event during which local volunteers come together to help schools and non-profit agencies around the county with various improvement projects. This year, Primerica was featured in the Gwinnett Daily Post for all of the work we did to assist the residents of Annandale Village, a facility for adults with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries.

Primerica and its employees have a long tradition of volunteering time, resources and money to help improve our community. One of the long standing charity events our employees are proud to be a part of is the Gwinnett Coalition’s Great Days of Service.

In September, about 65 employees participated in this year’s project: revitalizing the Hi-Hope Center. Read the Gwinnett Daily Post’s interview with Renee Carter, Primerica’s program and events coordinator!

Primerica’s Great Day of Service was a beautiful, breezy fall day that had been preceded by days and days and days of rain in the Atlanta area. Luckily, the clouds parted this past October 2, and more than 80 Primerica Home Office volunteers banded together to spruce up, clean up, paint up and generally fix up the Partners Against Domestic Violence women’s and children’s emergency shelter.

Out came the brooms, mops, paint scrapers, brushers, rollers, sprayers, rakes, shovels, shears and saws – all employed to slick the place up a bit. The object was to spend a day making the shelter and its yard and play areas just a little nicer for those in need.

Great-Day-of-Service

The Great Day of Service is the brainchild of the Gwinnett (County, GA) Coalition for Health and Human Services and it’s one of the most popular volunteer service days at Primerica’s Home Office. Primericans are always looking for ways to give back to their community and this truly was a Great Day of Service.
