Help support Cobb Christmas and “Stuff A Bus” with donations of money or gift cards, new toys and gifts or non-perishable food items. Your generosity will brighten the holidays for thousands of low-income families right here in your community.
Where to donate
Donations can be brought to the bus on East Park Square on December 11 between 11:15 a.m. and 2 p.m. or Marietta Business Association meetings or the Marietta Wine Market. The Stuff a Bus will also be available at other locations around the county.
Distribution of donations
Families seeking holiday assistance are carefully screened for eligibility jointly by The Center for Family Resources and the Cobb County Department of Family and Children Services. Qualifying families are assigned an appointment time during the distribution period to pickup their gifts.
Distribution is held at Jim Miller Park and managed by the Cobb Christmas Board of Directors with the help of hundreds of volunteers who sort food, stuff stockings, select toys and pack gifts. Each family receives at least a box of food, four new toys and a filled Christmas stocking for each child.
To maximize limited resources, Cobb Christmas coordinates with other county-wide holiday assistance programs to ensure that there is no duplication of services among the client population.
