CCF is pleased to announce that we have awarded $30,000 in charitable grants from the Cobb COVID-19 Community Response Fund.
The three Cobb County non-profit organizations receiving $10,000 each include:
- The Center for Family Resources: Funds will support the organization’s $60K in 60 Days campaign, created to respond to the financial needs of families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Cobb Schools Foundation: Funds will support the organization’s access to digital learning devices for students in Osborne, Campbell, South Cobb and Pebblebrook High School clusters.
- Ser Familia, Inc.: Funds will support emergency financial assistance for clients of Ser Familia’s Smyrna office.
“The Cobb Human Services Needs Assessment we commissioned last year, identified areas of Cobb County with the greatest needs,” stated Shari Martin, President and CEO of Cobb Community Foundation. “These grants will help families in those very communities who, in light of COVID-19, are facing challenges now that are truly unprecedented. We are so grateful to Liberty Furniture for allowing us to invest their charitable dollars where we know there will be a significant return.”
The grants were made possible by Liberty Furniture, a CCF Diamond Level Corporate Community Champion – a program designed for corporations and local businesses who believe that good corporate citizenship involves supporting charitable endeavors that are impacting the community.
