If you'd like to GIVE to the Extension so that they can provide for the needs of the men and women living there, they've started a fund called " Help Us Bridge the Gap."

A Note from the Extension:
We are so grateful to our community, donors, volunteers, and board of directors who are supporting us during this crisis. People like you, who continue to reach out and ask, “What can I do to help?”
Governor Kemp issued a public health state of emergency until May 13th. A month can make the difference of a lifetime to our residents. In the next 4 weeks, you can help us "bridge the gap" by partnering with us to provide some of the tangible needs of our residents.
Together, we can maintain the programs and services vital to the safety, health, and well-being of our residents. Here are some ways that you can make a difference this week:
Sponsor one of our residents for a full day of recovery for $44.
Keep our residents well! A $25 donation will purchase 5 face masks.
Provide dinner for 57 men with a donation of $170.
Provide dinner for 25 ladies with a donation of $75.
Also, The Extension is in need of the following items:
Disinfectant spray & wipes
Nonperishable food items
Forehead or Infrared thermometers
Please drop all items off in the front lobby of our men's campus located at 1507 Church Street Extension, Marietta, 30060. The Extension is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Thank you!

Kennestone and Paulding Hospitals:
*Updated info. from Becky: Please do NOT include Scripture in your cards to the patients and also, it would be best if the cards were NOT sealed in an envelope.
Dear Family at CCC,
As a nurse at both Kennestone and Paulding Hospitals, we've now been given the opportunity to start bringing in "Get Well" cards for our patients (not just for COVID-19 patients, but for all patients). With family members not being allowed, a card is sure to add a smile and brighten the day of our sweet, lonely, and often scared patients. If you or your kids would like to make cards for me to take in, your thoughtfulness would be greatly appreciated! You can drop them off on my porch (no need to ring the doorbell) or send them via mail to me:
2015 Stone Pointe Drive NW
Kennesaw, GA 30152

Marietta City Schools is prepared to continue instruction for students through our digital learning platform. With your help, we are launching a new program called “Connect-a-Kid.” This program will allow us to outfit school buses with mobile wi-fi “hot-spots” that will be placed in safe locations throughout our community. Additionally, you can temporarily support a Marietta family who may need access to a computing device and internet access in their home.
For just $35, you can provide one month of internet access for a Marietta student. If you would like to “Connect-a-Kid” and support such technology needs, please donate online at https://marietta.revtrak.net/marietta-city-schools/#/v/connect-a-kid.
