Important Update: Help Us Help Others Campaign

This morning, Cobb Community Foundation, with the support of United Way of Metro Atlanta’s Northwest Region and the Cobb Collaborative, presented to the Cobb County Board of Commissioners during their Agenda Work Session.

The entire session can be viewed here. Chairman Boyce introduces the presentation at 1:32:30 and the discussion continues through 2:38:55.

At the meeting, Shari Martin formally requested that Cobb County allocate $1 million for the purchase and distribution of food by organizations in our community.

Outcome: The Board of Commissioners decided to delay the vote to incorporate a formal process for the allocation of any funding approved. It has been indicated that there will be a Special Called Meeting at which this vote will be held. We will keep you updated with information as it becomes available.

Please tune into Fox 5 Atlanta (WAGA-TV) tonight at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. for an interview with Shari Martin and Howard Koepka, with Noonday Association of Churches, as they discuss today’s presentation and the growing needs in our community.

Thank you for your support.
