Cobb Christmas and CobbLinc have partnered annually for the Stuff-A-Bus program since 2004. Cobb Christmas is a non-profit, all volunteer organization started in 1963 by The Center for Family Resources to assist low-income families of Cobb County during the Christmas season. With heavy involvement from community groups, the program branched out on its own in 1978 and was incorporated in 1980. Since that time, Cobb Christmas has provided gifts of new toys and food to several thousand needy families and children in Cobb County. Cobb Christmas coordinates with other holiday programs in the area to avoid duplication of services.
