Campus Closet Giveaway Day | by Kenji Terawaki

On October 30, more than 600 pieces of clothing were picked up by our students yesterday, during the Campus Closet Giveaway Day event. Donations from alumni, students, Ga Tech staff, and parents have all found a new home and use. A big Thank You to STAR Director, Steven Fazenbaker, and STAR student volunteers, Almi, Emily, and Katiadou to assist during the event. 

It is an honor to be able to help students. Along with many words of gratitude expressed by the students who picked up the clothes, we also heard amazing stories that left us with hope that now they have an outfit to interview in, feel more confident in getting a job/internship/co-op, or on their first week at work. Lastly, a big Thank You to our Campus Closet Ambassador Joseph Cantatore for all his hard work.
