Donations Needed: Cobb Schools Continues Support for the Center for Children and Young Adults

Disinfectant spray, sponges, and bleach—those are some of the items in critical need at the Center for Children and Young Adults (CCYA). So, the Cobb Schools central office is stepping up again to help. Cobb Schools will collect cleaning supplies during October, November, and December to donate the Center.

The Cobb Schools leadership and academic teams “adopted” the Marietta-based center last school year to help at-risk youth. CCYA provides residential housing for students ages 12 to 19 who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by their caregivers. Many of the youth who call CCYA home are Cobb County School District students.  

As a private, non-profit facility, the center relies heavily on support from individuals, communities, schools, and corporations. The needs of the facility vary from financial support to specific day-to-day needs of the students. 

Cobb Schools hosted a toiletry drive in February and a snack drive over the summer to help our students. Donating to CCYA is another way Cobb’s team of educators extend their support of students to outside the classroom and beyond the perimeter of the school campuses.  

Here’s what CCYA needs: 

  • Lysol/Clorox wipes 
  • Disinfectant sprays 
  • Air fresheners 
  • Sponges 
  • Toilet bowl cleaners 
  • Multi-surface cleaning solutions (spray and liquid) 
  • Bleach 
  • Toilet bowl brushes
