The UGA Alumni Association
New York City Chapter invites you to
Operation Backpack
 
Students are heading back to school soon and many children living in NYC homeless shelters are in need of school supplies.

Join the New York City Chapter of the UGA Alumni Association at Beekman Beer Garden on Thursday, August 8 to help gather supplies to fill a couple of backpacks for those young people who need basic items for class.

UGA alumni and friends are asked to please bring supplies such as pencils, notebooks and dictionaries to the gathering. A complete list of suggested supplies can be found here. Gathering supplies for these students is a great family activity and educates children about the challenges facing some of their peers. Operation Backpack is organized by Volunteers of America-Greater New York. To learn more, please click here.

Your donation(s) will help these children fit in and be prepared as the back-to-school season arrives. Please visit the Facebook Event Page for this community service project and help the chapter spread the word online.

Help show NYC what it means to be a Georgia Bulldog – see you on August 8! Go Dawgs!
