OHR was able to secure a number of backpacks for a school supply drive in July 2012. Georgia Tech donated a total of 377 backpacks filled with school supplies to 167 GT families with children (grades K-12) who may not have had the financial means to obtain the necessary supplies for school. The GT community donated notebooks, paper, folders, scissors, erasers, crayons, pencils, markers, glue, rulers, pencil sharpeners, index cards, calculators, and more.
OHR is so thankful to the entire community who made this initiative a success and help in continuing to make Georgia Tech a Great Place to Work!
