For the seventh year in a row, local business and community leaders are spearheading efforts to raise funds for two special appreciation events for local public safety professionals. The first celebration is to be held this October to thank Precinct 4 police officers for all they do to keep our community safe. This event will coincide with Cobb County Chamber of Commerce’s Public Safety Appreciation Week, and with the support of local businesses, organizations and individuals has now become an annual event. The second event will take place in Spring 2020 when the public safety appreciation committee will host the Cobb County Fire Department’s annual awards banquet.
“Both events take place right here in East Cobb and we are confident that our community will once again rise to the challenge and provide the financial support needed to make these appreciation celebrations very meaningful for these special heroes. Fundraising was very successful last year, however, there is still a need to raise additional funds to ensure both events’ continued success,” says Susan Hampton, co-chair of the East Cobb Public Safety Celebrations committee. “We are so grateful for the outpouring of support shown year after year from our community, and we are honored to partner with the newly formed Cobb County Public Safety Foundation. We also appreciate the continued support of co-host sponsors, the East Cobb Business Association and the Cobb Chamber’s East Cobb Area Council,” says committee co-chair Kim Paris. Local businesses as well as families, schools and civic groups are encouraged to make donations to this worthy cause. See the facing page for details on donation levels and sponsorship opportunities.
