Volunteers & Donations Needed!
Check out this informational video with all the details of KIDS CARE & Cobb County Police Community Affairs Unit "Backing the Need" community service giving project.
"Backing the Need" is a collaborative effort by KIDS CARE nonprofit and the Cobb County Police Department to collect new school supply donations. All donations will be given to students in need in Cobb County for the 2021/2022 school year.
We will be accepting new school supply donations via drop boxes throughout the Cobb County area from July 9 - 23rd.
We will have two Drive by Drop off days at the Cobb Civic Center. Simply drive by and we will unload your donations from 8 am - 12 pm on July 17th (Sat) and July 23rd (Fri).
We are accepting monetary donations to be used specifically for the purchase of school supplies and the "Backing the Need" program.
Additional info can be found in the drop down menu of "Backing the Need". on this website.
We will need volunteers on for our Drive by Drop off events in July at the Cobb Civic Center (2 dates). Click on the "Backing the Need" drop down menu and then click on volunteers for more info.
You, your family or youth you know may host a "mini-drive" to collect as many donations as you can to donate to KIDS CARE & the Cobb County Police Department. All donations will be given to students in need for the upcoming school year.
We also need help promoting our event, if you can help in anyway with that please contact us.
