As you are aware, Cobb is the premiere place to live, work, and play.  Cobb is also a wonderful community that bands together to help those in need. If you have been unduly impacted by this public health crisis, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Cobb Community Foundation.

Cobb Community Foundation (CCF) has posted on its blog some of the more ways COVID-19 will impact our most vulnerable community members and links for many of the non-profits working to assist.  CCF has also established the Cobb COVID-19 Community Response Fund as a vehicle to support non-profit organizations serving Cobb as they respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus.  Contributions to this fund will be distributed swiftly as needs arise.  CCF has intentionally established this fund with flexibility in mind to ensure that these resources may support communities as conditions, circumstances, and needs change throughout this crisis.  

The fund is available now to receive contributions. There are numerous churches and organizations making sure that food is available to those who need it.  Cobb Community Connection will house information about each site, including who is served, what is provided, and hours of operation as well as a map view of locations.  Food site information is currently being collected and confirmed will be updated continuously throughout this crisis.  

Any organizations delivering meals or otherwise providing food should contact Cobb Community Foundation at 770-859-2366 or email [email protected].
