Ford Elementary 2019-20 Supply List

Thanks for Giving Food Drive
The Thanks for Giving Food Drive assists not only local Cobb County families, but also Ford families in need. Last year Ford donated over 12,000 food items to the CFR (Center for Family Resources) which helped feed over 160 families for not just Thanksgiving Day, but for the entire week of Thanksgiving!
We have a huge goal again this year of 10,000 food items. Please join us as we continue the tradition of helping families create their own Thanksgiving memories and traditions. All canned foods are due by Thursday, November 21st at 8:00 a.m. No glass items please.
