Chamber launches COVID school response

Submitted information:

The Cobb Chamber’s Partners in Education program is launching an effort to connect local businesses with Cobb’s public school systems to provide specific items and support to help each school meet the needs of students during the coronavirus pandemic.

“In responding to the coronavirus pandemic, our local public schools have faced unprecedented challenges, all while continuing to provide the world-class education that sets Cobb County apart,” said Dana Johnson, COO of the Cobb Chamber and Executive Director of SelectCobb. “Every year Partners in Education brings businesses and schools together, bringing valuable resources to classrooms across the county.”

This year, the Cobb Chamber is partnering with Cobb County School District and Marietta City Schools through the Partners in Education COVID-19 Response program to address specific equipment, financial, and additional support needs for local schools.

Each district has shared that schools have needs in the following areas:

  • Financial Donations: Supporting needs like childcare, food security, and digital/distance learning equipment;
  • In-Kind Donations: Especially impactful donations include, but are not limited to, school supplies, computers and tech accessories (ear buds, headphones, etc.), mobile hotspots, and services such as preparing donated computers for student use;
  • Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteers may be helpful for a variety of needs;
  • Social, Emotional, and Academic Support: Providing services and experiences that support the social, emotional, and academic development of students, such as stress management classes, internet safety classes, internships, virtual business tours, and virtual “day in the life of” experiences.

Businesses can visit www.cobbchamber.org/pie to join the Partners in Education COVID-19 Response program. For more information about Partners in Education, contact Nate Futrell, Workforce Initiatives Senior Manager at [email protected] or (770) 859-2374.
