Proceeds from Taste of Athens Weekend 2013 benefit Community Connection of Northeast Georgia. Assisting over 70,000 people each year to find the help they need, Community Connection is an umbrella agency overseeing three crucial services in Northeast Georgia:
•Get Help: Connecting individuals in the 13 county area resources via the 2-1-1 Information and Referral Helpline which provides more than 30,000 referrals to individuals in need of services each year;
•Give Help: Connecting thousands of interested citizens to volunteer opportunities in the community via the Hands On Northeast Georgia program;
•Grow Help: Connecting organizations to resources (including each other) via the Non-Profit Development Alliance, which helps non-profit organizations receive the training, support and assistance they need, while ‘incubating’ new programs to fill gaps in services.
