Emory collects school supplies for Northwest Atlanta students
Emory’s Northwest Atlanta Community Outreach Partnership Center is collecting new or very gently used school supplies this holiday season for the children of northwest Atlanta.

The annual “Gifts for Education Make a Difference” drive will collect school supplies until Dec. 18. Items may be dropped in the decorated collection boxes located around campus.

More than a dozen members of the Emory community already have volunteered to place a collection box in their department offices, and to encourage faculty, staff and students to contribute whatever they can.

More participants are needed; please contact Nicole Taylor at 404-727-8140 or ntaylo2@emory.edu.
