Smile Bags

After attending a CCC program, we want participants to leave with more than just a smile – so we make sure everyone leaves with a Smile Bag.

CCC consults with our partner agencies to determine how to best meet their specific needs. Each Smile Bag is packed by CCC teens, young families, service groups and other volunteers throughout our community. In 2020, through CCC’s Covid response efforts, these Smile Bags impacted nearly 10,000 children from all over Atlanta.

While the contents of our Smile Bags change, each bag is filled with items such as:

  • Engaging activities
  • Books
  • School supplies
  • Personal care products

The most needed personal care products include: deodorant, hand sanitizer, lip balm, lotion, mouthwash, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.

CCC is always interested in sponsors who may be able to provide bulk items we need for Smile Bags, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and more! Please contact Tara Kornblum if you’re interested in making a donation. You can also make a monetary donation to help support this project!
