Cobb Senior Services request donations

Also needed are peanut butter (small jars), canned chicken or tuna, canned soups (small cans or cups) and small bags of cat food.

No glass containers or large or family-size items should be donated.

Donations also are being accepted of new crossword puzzles, word scrambles, coloring books and other activities for Cobb homebound senior citizens.

Monetary contributions also are being received.
