Rotary Club of Marietta joined forces with the Kiwanis Club of Marietta in November and in February to raise funds and collect jars of peanut butter for Cobb Family Resources' food pantry.
Primarily our peanut butter will be distributed to children during breaks from school. Many children in our community get their only meals at school, and the food packages sent home will sustain them through the breaks.
In November, we had a friendly contest to see which club could donate the most jars....and in February we held a lovely fundraising-Valentine's dinner party to "spread more love." Ironically, February is Rotary's Conflict Resolution and Peace building month and we really played this up with our arch rival Kiwanian friends. Our events were the most successful ever for CFR.
