August 1, 2022- Tommy Nobis Center, a Marietta-based nonprofit that helps individuals with disabilities enter or return to employment, produced a total of 2,100 COVID-19 Prevention Kits, which are being provided to Cobb County schools for distribution to students with disabilities and their families. The kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and COVID education materials were assembled by TNC’s EYES (Early Youth Employment Services) summer program participants during the months of June and July.

The initiative which was made possible by the generous support from the Cobb County Community Development Block Grant provided hands-on training and work experience for students with disabilities while allowing them to give back to their community and support their peers in a unique and valuable way.

“The recent surge in COVID-19 cases within Cobb County continues to cause concern across our community,” says Dave Ward, President and CEO of Tommy Nobis Center. “This project gave students the opportunity to work and contribute to the wellbeing of their fellow students.”
