Welcome to the website for the Carroll County Soup Kitchen. We are a non-profit, totally volunteer-run organization in Carrollton, Georgia
Our new email address: email@example.com
Graddick Communications and Kroger have teamed up again this year to sponsor "Sacks for Sacks"! Every time a local quarterback is "sacked," the Carroll County Soup Kitchen receives a $20 Kroger gift card! So far, we have received over $400! Thank you, Graddick Communications and Kroger!
In October we had volunteers from UWG, and Southwire's Project Gift, and 12-for-Life in addition to our "regulars" from local churches!
Many thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers!
We are doing something new in December, and volunteers are needed. Click here for more information.
