Cobb Community Foundation CEO is Recognized for Her Efforts During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Cobb Community Foundation President and CEO Shari Martin has been recognized by Food Security for America for her work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, CCF, in partnership with local non-profit organizations, such as Food Security for America, businesses and community leaders, has been supporting a variety of initiatives to provide much-needed resources to Cobb families, including access to food, rental assistance, childcare and other basic needs.

“Everywhere I looked, there was Shari Martin and the Cobb Community Foundation. She was on the front lines, bringing our community together and facilitating communication so we could picture what was needed to make a difference,” shared Rev. Nancy Yarnell, Founder and CEO of Food Security for America. “This award is a small token of our appreciation to recognize these efforts.”

“I am so humbled by the recognition and very proud to accept this incredibly special award on behalf of Cobb Community Foundation,” said Martin. “It’s been amazing to watch government agencies, non-profits and businesses come together the way they have to take care of this community. It’s an honor to be a part of this work, and I am grateful to Food Security for America for supporting our community in need.”


On behalf of everyone at CCF, we are so proud of this recognition and are so grateful for your leadership. Congratulations, Shari!
