Since 2013, local business and community leaders have led efforts to raise funds to honor and thank our East Cobb public safety heroes. In the fall, the officers and staff at Precinct 4 (Lower Roswell Rd.) are treated to a special night out with their spouse or significant other, and in the spring the committee hosts the annual 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 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 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, churches and civic groups are encouraged to make donations to this worthy cause. You may also make your donation online at www.ccpsf.org (use “in honor of” area to designate “Public Safety Celebration”).
