The Coweta County Family Connection Collaborative will hold the third annual Resource Expo and Toys-For-Tots registration at Central Educational Center Oct. 17.

The Resource Expo, which runs from 4-6 p.m., allows community members to learn about local resources, non-profit agencies, employment and educational opportunities within Coweta County. Parents and guardians attending the event will also be able to register eligible children for the local holiday Toys-For-Tots program. 

Toys-For-Tots registration is open to children living in Coweta County. Proof of residency, in Coweta, and income verification are required at time of registration. Parents and guardians should bring each child's Social Security card, PeachCare or Medicaid card, and court orders if guardianship awarded. Also bring a utility bill, or state issued ID, for proof of residency.

The Resource Expo will be in the CEC cafeteria located just inside the main entrance. Doors open at 4 p.m. The Expo will end promptly at 6 p.m. Exhibitors should plan to set up at 3 p.m. CEC is located at 160 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. in Newnan.
