A word from Creature Comforts Brewing: With the vision of being a good neighbor to those in need, we created Get Comfortable in 2015, which has grown to be a year-round program. Get Comfortable’s mission is to unify the business community to resource the agencies meeting the community's most pressing needs. In Athens-Clarke County, where one in five people are food-insecure and the poverty rate is 34.4 percent—double the state, and triple the national, average—the campaign has traditionally focused on hunger, homelessness, and poverty. Through a rigorous vetting process as well as the direction of an advisory committee of community stakeholders, the campaign selected nine organizations to highlight throughout the season and receive funding when the program wraps in November 2019.
The following nonprofits were chosen as the 2019 Get Comfortable partners: Action Ministries, Advantage Behavioral Health, The Ark, Athens Community Council on Aging, Bigger Vision, Chess & Community, College Factory, Family Connection-Communities in Schools, and Mercy Health Center.
