2019 Great Backpack Giveaway Volunteer Opportunities

We need your help to ensure students begin the 2019-2020 school year prepared to succeed! Each year, Agape collects and distributes new backpacks filled with school supplies to 2,000+ under-served students in the community. We hope to team up with you this year to make this event another huge success!

Please choose one slot with a committed volunteer number and RSVP. This fills up quickly every year!

Volunteers are encouraged to wear sneakers.

Volunteers must be able to lift a full backpack filled with school supplies.

All volunteers will receive on-site orientation.

All volunteers must be age 18+.

Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information please contact Bridget Sivewright at [email protected] or 404-367-3947.


Volunteer Opportunities:

Pre-prep: Help with organization and counting of donated materials to determine what additional materials and quantities need to be ordered. Work will be at the Agape facility on Marietta Blvd.

Transportation: Help move donated supplies from the Agape facility to the distribution event area. Distribution location is only about a mile down the road. Please bring your own car to assist. Note: this volunteer job will be very laborious, please only sign up if you can lift and move heavy materials.

Sorting: Help stuff backpacks with school supplies for varying age groups to be ready for distribution. This will be at the distribution location on Bolton road, NOT at the Agape facility.

Distribution: Help with day-of operations, including distributing backpacks, assisting recipients, managing traffic, replenishing tables, clean-up and break down.
