COLLECTIONS for March will go to Communities in Schools. Across the country, approximately
1 in 5 children under the age of 18 live in poverty. These are disproportionately children of color who
already struggle with issues of access and equity. Without community support, they are more at risk for
missing school, dropping out and failing to earn a high school diploma. CIS surrounds students with a
community of support, empowering them to stay in School and achieve in life. Each Sunday in March, we
will be collecting:
$5-$10 gift cards for fast food, Target, Walmart etc for attendance incentives
New underwear and socks - especially middle school and high school sizes
New or gently used books for elementary through high school ages
Have an EBT card you’d like to use for donations? This Amazon list that will ship directly to

SIMPLE NEEDS GEORGIA. While agencies focused on vulnerable populations are doing great work,
most focus on the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and job training. SNGA seeks to “fill in the cracks”
by meeting other unmet, but important, needs. It is in these simple acts—bringing a tent to a person living
in the woods, or providing birthday gifts to a homeless child—that we help connect people with the
services that can improve their lives. Donations are accepted the First and Third Saturdays of each
month. Go to Simpleneedsgablog.com for list of current needs. Located off Cobb Parkway in Marietta.
MUST Breakfast and Dinner Volunteers
Volunteers are needed for this month’s Elizabeth Inn dinner. The time commitment for cooking and
serving is from 5:45-7:15. It's fast, easy, rewarding, and greatly appreciated by the guests and staff. We
are continuing with MUST's requirements by purchasing all the food rather than asking for food
Masks, gloves, and hairnets are required and provided. MUST also require volunteers to wear closed-
toed shoes. Bring an apron, too, if you come to serve. If you are unable to serve, please consider a
donation to help with food costs. To donate funds use Realm, Outreach Special Collects and put MUST
Dinner in the memo line.
St Cats has served dinner at the shelter once a month for over 35 years. If you have any questions or
want to be sent the Sign Up Genius link please feel free to call Tracey Buckalew or Stephanie Langmaid.
