Believing that good companies are good citizens, Creature Comfort Brewing created Get Comfortable in 2015 with the goal to make serving simple for their customers and fellow businesses. In 2020, Creature Comfort crested a major program milestone—having now mobilized over $1.5 million to meet Athens most pressing needs!
At the wrap event, Creature Comfort also announced their 2021 Get Comfortable agency recipients for both Athens and Atlanta. These agencies include Acceptance Recovery Center, Advantage Behavioral Health, Athens Area Homeless Shelter, Bethel Haven, Bigger Vision, Family Promise, Mercy Health Center, and Sparrow’s Nest in Athens-Clarke County. In DeKalb County, they are locking arms with College AIM, Friends of Refugees, Innovative Solutions for Disadvantage & Disability, and Our House.
“As we prepare to launch what I believe will be the most critical year of community development work we’ve seen in our lifetime—with the needs greater, and the resources fewer than ever before—now, especially, should philanthropists be concentrating resources to maximize their impact rather than going it alone,” said Matt Stevens, Vice President of Strategic Impact.
“DIY altruism is incredibly admirable, but the strategic alignment of funding is how we will tackle our community’s greatest disparities together. That is why I am grateful there are so many like-minded Georgia businesses and citizens who, through Get Comfortable, are willing to channel their generosity where it matters most.”
2021 BEER COLLABORATION
Creature Comfort is excited to announce that the 2021 beer collaboration will be made with the great folks at Sierra Nevada! Creature Comfort has long admired Sierra Nevada’s commitment to their community and the environment. Creature Comfort is looking forward to coming together to brew a Hazy Double IPA in celebration of their shared loved for Citra hops. As in year’s past, 100-percent of the profits from this release will go directly into the tax-deductible Get Comfortable Fund.
“It’s an honor to team up with Creature Comforts on Get Comfortable,” said Sierra Grossman, Vice President of Sierra Nevada. “Craft brewers know that you can accomplish more together, and we’ve long admired this meaningful project and its impact on the community. Get Comfortable brings together our biggest passions—great beer and doing good.”
