Help us provide more than a meal this Thanksgiving.
Help us keep family traditions in the family and bring hope
home for the holidays.
For 35 years, the Center for Family Resources has been providing families in Cobb County with food for Thanksgiving, but we believe that Thanks for Giving is more than a meal. It is an opportunity for families to create and continue family traditions, to gather with their loved ones and to give thanks in a way that is meaningful to them.
Our goal is 1,000 Thanks for Giving food boxes for 1,000 families. This year might look different but with your support we can make this happen.
Help us provide more than a meal this Thanksgiving. Help us keep family traditions in the family and bring hope home for the holidays.
Here are some ways YOU can support families through Thanks for Giving:
Ready to get your colleagues, your neighborhood, your family or your civic group involved in something impactful this holiday season? Then register to be a Smart Stuffer Packing Partner. Each box should cost approximately $60-$65 and contains food to not only make a traditional holiday meal, but also other staple food items such as cereal, peanut butter and jelly, pasta and beans, and canned meat. Below are links to the Registration Page with instructions on how to complete the Food Box, where and when to deliver and more!
