The Red Door Food Pantry serves hundreds of people and is open twice a week in Cartersville. Backpack Buddies of Georgia provides school children with backpacks filled with food and other necessities to take home to their families.

No doubt residents of nearby communities such as Kennesaw will be interested in supporting these charities. Local print shops often provide items such as flyers to help spread the word of events like this in the community.
