Holiday Help for Cobb County Families in Need

MARIETTA, GA -- Hundreds of Cobb County families live near, at or below the poverty line. They could use a boost, especially during the holidays.

This year, the Center for Family Resources, in partnership with the Department of Family and Children Services, will register 1,500 Cobb families for the 2010 Thanks for Giving campaign. It is estimated that this year will mark the largest Thanksgiving food distribution in the organization's history; it will take nearly 70,000 food items to ensure that every family in need receives the essentials for Thanksgiving.

Registration for Thanks for Giving 2010 will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 6 and Thursday, Oct. 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Cobb County Civic Center (548 South Marietta Parkway, Marietta, 30060). At this time, families can also sign up for the Cobb Christmas program.

Distribution of food boxes to registered families will be on Friday, Nov. 19 and Saturday, Nov. 20 at Jim R.

100 Cobb Middle and High School Students Needed as Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Delegates

Atlanta, GA-- 100 Youth Delegates Representing Middle and High Schools or Community Youth Groups in Cobb County are wanted to become delegates for the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council.

What is the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council?

It’s a movement, a youth-led movement. Never before has an issue required the guts and spirit of youth to move it forward; to shake the cages of communities everywhere to make changes, to rattle adults out of complacency, and to rub the sleep out of politician’s eyes and get them to wake up to the problem of underage and youth binge drinking that affects thousands of youth everyday. The Take It Back Movement is about youth power, youth influence, youth brains--multiplied! It’s about imagining the future different, telling the truth, using data to back the story, refusing censorship, staying at the edge, creating action, and generating results.
