Because every family deserves the Thanksgiving tradition.

It’s more than a meal.

Thousands of families struggle to keep food on the table. Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal. Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving event, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.

In 2018, we provided boxes of Thanksgiving staples to:


2,819 people in
756 Cobb County families

Thank you to our many volunteers, donors and sponsors who made this possible!


We're different. We don't cook or serve any food for Thanksgiving.

Instead, we believe in providing all the ingredients necessary for a family to make their own Thanksgiving meal at home, in a way that supports and honors their own family traditions.

Just because a family has fallen on hard times doesn't mean they should have to go without grandma's special secret stuffing recipe this year. Thanks For Giving does so much more than provide a meal. It provides a continuation of a family's holiday expectations and way of life.
