Upcoming Events: Winter 2013
Uniting Cobb to feed kids in need
Unite! is an organization whose heart is for churches to join together to serve our communities in such a way that God would transform our city for His Glory. We also recognize that by partnering with churches, schools and local community organizations, we can make an even greater impact in the communities that we serve. We know that there are many food pantries in Cobb County and although they receive tons of food and assistance during the holidays, they find themselves struggling to meet the needs of their clients soon thereafter. With this in mind, the team at Unite! Cobb is inviting the whole community to partner with us to stock the pantries for 2013.
The goal is to collect 1 nonperishable food item for each Cobb County resident. That’s about 700,000 cans!! That’s a HUGE goal and we know that we cannot do this without YOU!
Whether you are a church, school, local organization, business, food pantry, or individual, we would like you to be involved! Contact Kristin Hemingway at 678-561-5340 or at CobbCanKristin@ gmail.com.
