COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Cobb County firefighters will soon be out in the community, boots in hand.

Some of the funds will also support Camp Oo-U-La, Georgia's only camp held exclusively for burn-injured children. In 2011, 94 children attended the camp, which is funded entirely by the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation.

Be sure to look around the community for your friendly local firefighters on May 4, 11 and 18.

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

This year, five Charter Communications sales and service centers throughout the metro will collect shoeboxes from the public to deliver to the United Way.
