Beginning March 7th through the 30th, students at South Central Community and Technical College (formally known as BG -TECH) are doing a drive in which they are asking for donations of backpacks. Backpacks are essential for the homeless because they are easy to transport their basic necessities. Most shelters are temporary, first come first serve, and only available overnight.
There is no place for storage, so the homeless need backpacks to keep their belongings with them. Please bring donations to the admissions office at the Main Campus located off Morgantown Road at 1845 Loop Drive, Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Other items that can be useful are: (for adults and children) socks, hats, gloves, toiletries, survival kit, first aid kits, snacks and drinks and gift cards.
Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, and are going for a great cause.
