How You Can Help: Donations & Volunteers
Marietta City Schools is grateful for our relationships in the community and the resources they provide our district. During the extended school closure, many of you have reached out to see how you can help. While we continue to post volunteer needs, we know at this time, for some, it’s preferable to donate. These funds assist our students and families, should you be inclined or in the position to give.
When a crisis or emergency situation impacts the Marietta City Schools family, our School Social Workers are on the front line, responding to families’ unique needs. The MCS CARES (Crisis Aid Resources for Emergency Situations) Fund will provide resources for the Social Workers—augmenting those of other social service organizations—to help provide food, clothing, supplies, and other items needed by families during or immediately after the crisis.
Marietta City Schools is prepared to continue instruction during this extended closure for students through our digital learning platform. But we know that students without access will fall behind. With your support, we can help ensure access for ALL our students. Donations will allow us to outfit school buses with mobile wi-fi “hot-spots” to be placed in safe locations throughout our community. Additionally, you can temporarily support Marietta families who may need access to a computing device and internet access in their homes. $35 provides one month of internet access for a Marietta student; just $277 replaces a Chromebook. All donations will support student technology needs.
Donations made to our Lunch Angels account are used to cover accumulated student lunch debt and to help offset the costs of student meal delivery during school closures, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Donors may designate a specific school in the comment box; otherwise, Marietta City Schools will work with the School Nutrition Department to apply the donation to the program and/or school with the most immediate need.
Donations can also be made by check.
Please make checks payable to Marietta City Schools. Please put the name of the fund you are supporting on the memo line.

Now that summer is here, Marietta City Schools is still making lunches!
We are excited to announce that, with MUST Ministries’ support, we have resumed bus delivery of breakfast/lunch on three routes in the Franklin Gateway corridor and in neighborhoods near the Big Chicken/Cobb Parkway Walmart. Volunteers are needed to ride the buses and help distribute the lunches. MUST is coordinating the volunteers for this program; if you are interested, please sign up at https://www.mustministries.org/vols-group or contact Angel Radford at email@example.com for more information.
Drivers are also needed to transport bagged groceries from Highlands Church to First Presbyterian Marietta. These groceries will be distributed free of charge to Marietta City Schools families. If you are strong AND have a truck, van, or large SUV, and are available on Wednesdays from approximately noon to 2pm—then Pastor David Scott could use your help! Please email David directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
