Recognizing Our Volunteers 
All CAC volunteers were recently thanked at an annual luncheon and long-time volunteers were recognized for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service!

CAC volunteers were thanked during National Volunteer Week in April at our annual Volunteer Appreciation luncheon. Many were recognized for reaching milestones in the service from 5 years to 20 years at CAC! Thank you to all CAC volunteers for your service and dedication to helping our neighbors in need. 

 Students Support CAC
Students from Cumberland Academy of Georgia volunteer in the CAC Food Pantry on Friday afternoons.
CAC is fortunate to have students from many schools in the area come to volunteer their time and donate food and clothing items they collect in drives. Thanks for another great school year and we look forward to seeing you again after the summer!
