The Center for Family Resources 
Thanks for Giving
They believe in providing all the ingredients necessary for a family to make their own Thanksgiving meal at home, in a way that supports and honors their own family traditions.

Just because a family has fallen on hard times doesn't mean they should have to go without grandma's special secret stuffing recipe this year. Thanks For Giving does so much more than provide a meal. It provides a continuation of a family's holiday expectations and way of life.

The East Cobb Business Association and the East Cobb Council of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce are organizing an appreciation dinner for Precinct 4 Cobb Police personnel.

The event first began in 2013 as a way of showing thanks to officers serving the East Cobb area, and the effort also includes a similar celebration for all of Cobb Fire Department personnel in March.

In addition to a dinner, public safety personnel being honored will receive gift cards, raffle prizes and other donated gifts of appreciation.

The presenting sponsor is the WellStar East Cobb Health Park.

Susan said one of the most popular forms of giving for businesses, organizations and individuals alike is a $25 “Thank A Hero” contribution that includes a card at the events with the giver’s identification.

Checks are payable to “Public Safety Celebration” and are tax-deductible. They may be mailed to:

East Cobb Business Association

Attention: Public Safety Celebration

P.O. Box 70814

Marietta, GA 30007

Or bring the donations to our luncheon this Tuesday!

Here’s more from  Susan Hampton and Kim Paris, another longtime East Cobb community activist, who’s the other co-chair:

“We continue to work together to plan these appreciation events, and to raise the funds necessary to insure their success. We are reaching out to individuals, businesses, civic and other nonprofit organizations, schools, neighborhoods and churches, and hope you will join us in support of our community’s public safety heroes!”
