For several years now, local East Cobb business and community leaders have spearheaded efforts to raise funds for two special annual appreciation events for our local public safety heroes. The first celebration is an event held in November to thank the Precinct 4 (located on Lower Roswell Rd.) police officers, leadership, and staff for all they do to keep our community safe. The second event will take place in spring 2022 when the public safety appreciation committee will host the Cobb County Fire Department’s annual awards banquet. Due to the pandemic these events were not able to take place last year, however, our community’s continued generosity allowed us to fund the precinct’s holiday reception, and committee members delivered special treats to all of the East Cobb fire stations.

“Both events take place right here in East Cobb at Olde Towne Athletic Club, and we are confident that our community will continue to provide the financial support needed to make these appreciation celebrations very meaningful for these special heroes. Even in a year as challenging as last year we were still able to recognize and thank our public
safety heroes who keep us safe around the clock”, 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 Cobb County Public Safety Foundation. We also appreciate the continued support of our co-host sponsors, the East Cobb Business Association and the Cobb Chamber’s East Cobb Area Council, and presenting sponsors Wellstar Health System and the Rotary Club of East Cobb. We couldn’t do it without their continued support, as well as the support of all of our wonderful sponsors and donors,” says committee co-chair Kim Paris.

Local businesses as well as families, churches, schools and civic groups are encouraged to make donations to this worthy cause. See the facing page for details on tax-deductible donation levels and sponsorship opportunities.
