Delta Community Credit Union’s Philanthropic Fund has donated $20,000 to two Cobb County charities.

The organization donated $10,000 each to MUST Ministries and the Tommy Nobis Center.

The donation to MUST will support the charity’s Neighborhood Pantry Program, which are located inside Cobb and Cherokee county schools and support families in those areas.

The contribution to the Tommy Nobis Center will go toward its Early Youth Employment Services program, which offers job training, education and other skills for high school students with disabilities.

According to its website, the Tommy Nobis Center offers vocational training for people with disabilities. Since 1977, it has helped more than 25,000 people "find and keep meaningful jobs," the nonprofit said.

Along with its Neighborhood Food Pantry initiative, MUST Ministries offers food, housing, employment services and clothing for less fortunate people across eight counties.

Throughout the year, Delta Community Credit Union said its Philanthropic Fund will donate about $100,000 to charities that promote STEM/STEM education, financial literacy and youth development.
