Led by Affiliate Don Powell of Monica Johnson’s CAR Community Cares Committee, this successful effort was weeks in the making. Said Don, “We had so much support from so many people and organizations who feel the same way we do, that no child deserves to go hungry.” Scores of volunteers sourced and picked up the lunch ingredients, and scores more met to assemble them. 3000 lunches were built, bagged and delivered, all within only 3 hours.
Many thanks to our sponsors, without whom we could not have succeeded in this worthy cause. In particular, thank you to our friends at Lennar Homes, who not only provided the funds to purchase the sandwich meat, but arrived with around 20 of their own staff to support our efforts.

- Loving Arms Cancer Outreach of Marietta, who you may have read was recently burglarized, losing a $5000 diamond necklace they were planning to auction off to fund their services to cancer patients in need. CAR donated $5000 to cover that loss. The check was presented to President and Founder, Ms. Shay Traynor.
- The J.T. Anderson Boys & Girls Clubs, located right down the street from our Association offices here in Marietta. CAR also donated $5000 to this worthy organization. The check was presented to Ms. Katherine Knittel, Director of County Corporate Development and Special Events.
