Where to Donate in Marietta

Looking for some suggestions on where you can donate in Marietta and Cobb? Here are a few of the organizations in the area looking for donations.

‘Tis the season for generosity. Cobb families seek out charities to give donations. Tell us where you donate your during the holidays, or any time of year.

Here is a list of county agencies in need of donations:

Animal Shelter - You can help make a difference in the lives of animals housed at Cobb County Animal Control. Money received will be used to help pay for the care of animals. There are volunteering opportunities, too.

K-9 Donations - The K-9 unit is a vital part of police department’s efforts to protect Cobb County. Police canines perform a broad range of essential functions, including patrol activities, narcotic detection and bomb detection. The police department is accepting donations to aid in the operation of the K-9 unit. Funds will go directly to help replace retired canines and help pay veterinarian expenses and other costs associated with the dogs’ well-being.

Keep Cobb Beautiful - You can buy all-occasion greeting or holiday cards, or simply make a donation.

Keep Cobb Beautiful is a nonprofit organization established in 1984 by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners. Its purpose is to assist the County and Board in establishing, promoting and maintaining a countywide policy for improved environmental and waste management. Keep Cobb Beautiful is made up of concerned people from all walks of life joined together to help the public become more aware and concerned about environmental issues.

Meals On Wheels - A $25 donation helps Meals on Wheels, a very special program that delivers a hot meal to homebound seniors, exist. Volunteers deliver meals 251 days out of the year. Each day, Senior Services prepares 150-180 meals (more than 40,000 a year) to be delivered to our eight pick-up sites. More than 400 volunteers not only make sure that a hot, nutritious meal is served, but also that each client is made to feel special with personal visits. All clients are encouraged and given the opportunity to make a donation, but no person is turned away because of inability to pay. There are volunteering opportunities, too.

Safety Village - You can order a custom brick with your name or donate to help pay for the completion of the new Safety Village. The bricks will be used in a special walkway so, in the future, you can bring your children and grandchildren to the Safety Village to see your name and their names as permanent legacies. You can create your own message or choose from selected designs for your brick.

Senior Wellness Center - Choose from a cookbook, personalized brick or granite bench to help pay for the building of the new Senior Wellness Center.

These are wonderful opportunities to spread holiday joy by supporting services within our community!

This article is very useful. Also, don't forget Cobb County Library branches. They all use volunteers to help take up the slack of fewer staff and lower budgets. Sorting and putting books back in the stacks, etc.

MUST Ministries helps 34,000 of your neighbors in need each year... people struggling in poverty and many who have fallen out of the middle class because of job loss and this economy. MUST provides hot meals, groceries, employment services, emergency shelter, housing, clothing and access to mental and physical healthcare.
