MOW Benefit Concert!

Musicians from Athens area high schools (and recent graduates) join forces to raise money for senior citizens during the holidays.  On December 16, 2016 from 6-10pm at the Foundry, six musicians/bands will perform original and cover music as well as holiday favorites.  All proceeds will go to the Meals on Wheels program through the Athens Community Council on Aging.  The Meals on Wheels program fosters independent living by delivering nutritious food to older adults.

Performers include Connor Byers, Zenith Blue, Benjamin Simpson, Simone Zaccaria Jeffers, The Varsity Band, and the Voltures.  Music will range from singer song-writer to hip hop, to classic rock.   Each set will include one holiday song.  At the end of the night the audience will vote on their favorite tune.  The winner will be invited back to the Foundry to open for a national touring act in 2017.  This is an all-ages event.  Tickets are $10 individual, $25 for a family of four.

TurkeyPalooza 2016!

Turkeypalooza

“Thank you for this! With this help, I was able to share a beautiful Thanksgiving meal with my family!”

TurkeyPalooza is an annual event that partners ACCA and the Office of Service Learning’s Campus Kitchen at UGA in providing a full thanksgiving meal to food insecure older adults.

Thanks to your generous donations, we raised $8985, exceeding our goal of $6500 to provide 200 families and 190 individuals with everything they need to celebrate Thanksgiving. 

With your help we can gave these families and  individuals a frozen turkey and a bag full of groceries – everything needed to prepare a delicious Thanksgiving feast for their families.  For those unable to prepare a meal, the Campus Kitchen at UGA prepared full Thanksgiving meals, complete with turkey and all the fixings that were then delivered by student and community volunteers.
