Buzzin' Back to School

Buzzin' Back to School: Blue and gold hand-drawn art.

Georgia Tech Human Resources has secured backpacks to be filled with school supplies. They will be distributed to Georgia Tech employees with children (grades K-12) who may not have the financial means to obtain the necessary supplies for school.

Who is eligible to receive a backpack?

This initiative is intended to support Georgia Tech families who may not be able to provide these supplies on their own. While there are no formal eligibility requirements, we ask that only those employees in need make a request for a backpack. Backpacks are reserved only for children of Georgia Tech employees. While we hope to have enough supplies to fulfill all requests, submission of a backpack request does NOT guarantee a backpack.

Important Dates 2021

Deadline to Request a Backpack July 23
Notification to Employees Receiving Backpacks July 21
Deadline to Drop Off Supplies July 23
Backpack Distribution    July 29 and 30
