HOMELESS HEROES DAY 

RECAP

The Backpack Project is proud to share that Homeless Heroes Day 2023 achieved our ambitious goal of packing and hand-delivering backpacks to 900+ people who were experiencing homelessness in Georgia. While exciting & fast-paced, Homeless Heroes Day was also a service-learning experience that facilitated education about homelessness as a social issue and empowered teams from participating companies to experience what it’s like to create the impact, not just fund it. Through the support of this year's participating companies and the help of over 150 employee-volunteers - QTS Data Centers, Credigy, Haddon-McClellan Associates, Reduce, KPMG, and U.S. Health Advisors - we were able to pack 900+ backpacks for those in the Atlanta homeless community who were seeking support.
