Every year, Traton Homes partners with Cobb Christmas for their annual Stuff-A-Bus event. This year, we celebrated a fantastic 19-year partnership with Cobb Christmas with our most successful year to date – raising nearly $24,000 for the organization. Over the years, Traton has collected and donated thousands of toys to the organization. Donations come from the company and our generous employees, vendors and many caring community members.
Cobb Christmas is one of the oldest nonprofits in Cobb County, working to serve the underprivileged in the area since 1963. Run by volunteers, the organization works to aid low-income working families who do not receive any other assistance during the holidays. The organization provides recipients ages 3 – 13 with three new toys each. The week before Cobb Christmas’ Annual Distribution event, a CobbLinc bus travels through the county to Stuff-A-Bus host sites gathering donations of food and toys.
