Food Drive


“Thanks for Giving”

November 6-14, 2017

Nickajack will be collecting food items for The Center for Family Resources, which provides over 1,500 Thanksgiving baskets to Cobb families each year.  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 food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.  With harvesting hands and a helping heart, please consider donating one of the following items to our food drive:

Canned Gravy

Canned Cranberry Sauce

Canned Potatoes

Canned Green/Yellow Vegetables

Canned Pumpkin Pie Mix

Canned Milk

Canned Meat, Tuna, or Ham

Canned Fruit

Canned Soup

Beginning November 6th, please send any food items that you would like to donate to school with your child.  There will be collection barrels located outside the main office.  Thank you for your generosity!  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Weber at 678-842-5814, ext. 230.
