We believe good businesses are good neighbors. In 2015, Creature Comforts established the Get Comfortable Campaign and Fund—the fund stewarded by the Athens Area Community Foundation—in order to align the business community to resource the agencies who address our city’s most pressing needs.
Over the years we have built out a robust infrastructure to support this work. But in a sentence, we harness the resources of local businesses and the expertise of our Advisory Committee to support the nonprofits best positioned to serve our community.
Based upon the Envision Athens 20-Year Action Agenda, as well as the counsel of our Advisory Committee, we will continue to direct our primary support in 2019 to agencies who address needs related to homelessness, hunger, and poverty.
