As part of the Georgia Tech’s Charitable Ticket Donation Program, the Georgia Tech Athletic Association and corporate sponsors will donate 2,000 football tickets to charitable organizations benefiting underprivileged children for the third-straight year.

The Georgia Tech’s Charitable Ticket Donation Program will collect tickets for local youth to attend the Yellow Jackets home opener on Sept. 9 against Jacksonville State.

Fans can donate a ticket for $12 or request tickets for underprivileged children by the Aug. 25 deadline on Georgia Tech's official website.

Because of high demand for tickets, general youth groups and organizations like youth sports teams, sports leagues and schools are not eligible to request tickets.
