HOW THE GRINCH SAVES CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE
Thank you for the Whos that showed the Grinch what Christmas is all about by donating toys for children in need at the How the Grinch Saves Christmas event on December 12. These donations will support the Acworth Police Department's annual toy drive to spread joy to local elementary school students in need. We are grateful for the community's overwhelming support! The Grinch's heart definitely grew three sizes that day!
Thank you to our hot cocoa sponsors, Northwest Classical Academy!

Thank you to the Rotary Club of North Cobb for sponsoring the stocking stuffers for this event!
