On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, the Georgia Tech softball team spent its time giving back to the community and volunteering through Open Hand Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets split into groups and delivered meals throughout the city to people in need.

“I really enjoyed our event on Sunday because seeing the smiles and joy on the people’s faces helps you realize the impact you have on their lives, as well as the impact they have on yours,” said senior catcher Courtney Ziese.

Georgia Tech continues its good works this weekend. The Yellow Jackets are collecting canned food donations for the Atlanta Community Food Bank at their doubleheader against Emory on Saturday at 1 p.m. to open their fall slate.

“I love being able to actually make a difference in our community by being involved and bringing cans that can help feed people,” said freshman outfielder Sydney Stavro. “Everyone talks about helping people, but being able to actually contribute to their health makes an unimaginable impact.”
