National TEAM Buzz Volunteering Day – October 18th, 2015

Post Event Update: Thanks to everyone (alumni, students and friends) that came out to help make Woodland Elementary an even better place for the students. See some of the pictures from your work.

On October 18th, Georgia Tech alumni and students across the US will be coming together on National TEAM Buzz Day to bring the Georgia Tech community together through volunteer events. Our North Metro area volunteer event this year is at Woodland Charter Elementary School near Sandy Springs. If you have time on Sunday, please stop by and come join our group of Georgia Tech students and alumni at the North Metro area TEAM Buzz event!

What: Georgia Tech’s TEAM Buzz is an organization devoted to making our communities better. The concept is simple: provide a service day that acts as a focal point to allow our campus and alumni to come together to serve. This year, our National TEAM Buzz Day is Sunday, October 18, 2015.

How: Our 2015 TEAM Buzz event in the North Metro area is at Woodland Charter Elementary School. Volunteer events include campus cleanup, building planting beds, shelving, and potting tables for an outdoor classroom/kitchen, and construction of an indoor hydroponics classroom. All ages are welcome. We will build indoors if there is inclement weather.

Where: Woodland Charter Elementary School – 1130 Spalding Dr, Atlanta, GA 30350

When: 8:30am-1:00pm – Sunday, October 18, 2015
