Schools across the Cobb County School District joined together to collect donations for children in need. District leadership loaded pallets of donated shampoo, soap, and needed toiletries. They rolled out carts filled with laundry detergent to add to the waiting large box truck.
The organization provides for the needs of the students outside of the classroom so they can excel inside the classroom. Helping to kick off the donation drive, Superintendent Chris Ragsdale encouraged Cobb schools to collect at least two crates of laundry detergent and toiletries during the month of February to donate to the Center for Children & Young Adults. Cobb Schools stepped up and donated more.
“In Cobb, we are focused on helping each and every student succeed in school and life. It’s through the support of organizations like The Center for Children & Young Adults that we can help care for our students’ basic needs like food, clothing, and a place to call home. Whether a teacher, parent, or student, we are all a family in Cobb, and we take care of each other,” said Superintendent Ragsdale.
