KIDS CARE host food drive

KIDS CARE, a Marietta based nonprofit who creates, supports and implements youth community service projects, is hosting a food drive Saturday. Non-perishable food items are being collected to distribute to people who are homeless and food insecure in Cobb County. For a list of food items requested please see kids-care2018.org/food-items-needed-1

All donated food that is collected will be given to Cobb Senior Service, Center for Family Resources, The Salvation Army, and M.U.S.T. Ministries. These organizations, and many others in Cobb County, are graciously feeding the many people in our community who are food insecure. Donations can be made in three ways:

¯ In-kind donations can be dropped off at the one time Drive Thru Drop Off.

¯ In-kind donations can be dropped at Drop Off Boxes located around town.

¯ Monetary donations can be made directly to the KIDS CARE food drive – this money will be directly used to purchase food which will then be donated to the above organizations: kids-care2018.org/donate-1

DRIVE THRU DROP OFF: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at Marietta High School Performing Arts Center Parking Lot. Please use the Manning Road entrance/exit.

DROP OFF BOXES are now available during business hours now thru Saturday at:

Families, youth, schools, churches, gyms and individuals are encouraged to help us in this community service mission and provide food for those in need. Please help us gather donations from friends/family/co-workers and deliver them to our Drive Thru or Drop off locations. We will then pass your food donations onto those in need in Cobb County.
