Volunteers Needed!

North Georgia Fair Food Booth with Cobb County Sheriff’s Office


The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office has been our partner in education for many years.  Representatives from the Sheriff’s Office volunteer their time, resources and talents for our students many times a month.  The biggest fund raiser they have for their Partners in Education Fund is to sponsor a food booth at the North Georgia State Fair.  Last year over $4,000 came back to Bells Ferry Elementary.   


The Sheriff’s Office is in need of volunteers to assist with the food booth.  They need Bells Ferry Community Members to help with taking and filling food orders.  The North GA State Fair runs from Thursday, September 20th through Sunday, September 30th.  Feel free to coordinate your volunteering time with the North Georgia Fair events.  Parents may split the hours of the shift but please know that children under the age of 16 years will not be allowed in the booth.  High school students needing volunteer hours are more than welcome to sign up!


Benefits of volunteering:

  • Free Fair Parking
  • Free Admission to the Fair
