KIDS CARE issued the following press release about the “Backing the Need” school supply drive which the nonprofit conducts in collaboration with the Cobb County Police Department:

Community School Supply Drive NOW-JULY 30TH.  We need your help! 🎒New backpacks, school supplies & non-perishable snacks are being collected for students in need for the 22/23 school year.  Can you please donate a few items?

Join KIDS CARE (Marietta nonprofit) and the Cobb County Police Department’s collaborative effort in “Backing the Need” – a community school supply drive to benefit students in need within Cobb County.  

Last year following our “Backing the Need” school supply drive, 283 new backpacks filled with supplies were donated to Cobb County students who needed a little help.  Let’s come together again this year to make a big impact for local students by giving them basic school supplies.
