Holiday Food Bags

 

Thanksgiving & Christmas Food Distributions 2020

This year we had some challenges due to the ongoing pandemic and schools returning to in person learning starting the middle of October.  Instead of the traditional food bags to each school we bought single serving items in bulk quantity to drop off at schools to help fill their food pantries.  This year food was distributed to elementary schools in Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas and Paulding Co.  

  • Cherokee County - Arnold Mill Elementary, Johnston Elementary, Woodstock Elementary, Oak Grove Elementary, Hasty Elementary and R.M. Moore Elementary.

  • Cobb County – Austell Elementary, Clay Elementary, East Cobb Middle School, Mableton Elementary and Milford Elementary.

  • Douglas County – Annette Winn Elementary, Beulah Elementary, Lithia Springs Elementary, Sweetwater Elementary, Eastside Elementary and North Douglas Elementary.  

  • Paulding County - Nebo Elementary, Baggett Elementary, Hiram Elementary, Dugan Elementary, Dallas Elementary and New Georgia Elementary.

 

Lodge 13 also joined forces with Sweetwater Mission in Austell to provide a Thanksgiving & Christmas meal to 100 needy families in Cobb & Douglas County. In addition to a Turkey these families will also get one weeks’ worth of groceries as part of the “Let’s Talk Turkeys” program.
