Give a Kid a Chance, a local nonprofit organization designed to help the less fortunate students of Cherokee county get ready for the new school year, is gearing up for their 9th event on Saturday, July 19th. The event will be held at two locations, one in Canton and one in Woodstock:
Canton First Baptist Church– 1 Mission Point, Canton GA 30114
Hillside United Methodist Church – 4474 Towne Lake Parkway, Woodstock GA 30189
This year’s event welcomes a new partner, Bethesda Community Clinic, a fully-quipped medical clinic located in Canton that specializes in primary care for all age groups. The clinic has launched a campaign for 1,000 gift cards that will provide a child in need with a checkup, sports physical, dental visit or sick-visit and treatment. These gift cards are $40 each and can be ordered online here. The gift cards will be given out at the Canton First Baptist Church location.
