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 COVID-19 crisis, 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.
Marietta City Schools has continued 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. $20 provides one month of internet access for a Marietta student; just $277 replaces a Chromebook. All donations will support student technology needs.
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.
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.

Volunteers are needed to help unload deliveries, sort and bag, and then distribute; morning and afternoon slots are available.
