  • “Aegina… Volunteers for the People and for the Environment” 

The association “Aegina… Volunteers for the People and for the Environment” operates exclusively with the support of volunteers and is not sponsored by any government body. It was started in December of 2008 by a small group of volunteers with the goal of providing real, tangible assistance to our fellow citizens in need. 
The mission of the association is to support and comfort families in need in our community through material, emotional, and spiritual means and to improve the quality of life of the people of our community. 

The association works with major supermarkets, which supply it once a month with food and cleaning supplies to be distributed to families in need. Over the course of nearly six years, the ever-expanding group of volunteers has grown to include more than sixty community members who assist the organization, either through financial contributions or through in kind donations, depending on our needs. 

Main activities are focused on social support (collection and distribution of food and other items to cover basic needs, networking of like-minded organizations, companies, and individuals, etc.), on cultural events with the purpose of gathering supplies for distribution and on the environment (beach and waterway cleanups, research on the preservation of the natural habitat in Aegina, school field trips to the forests, training and informational activities about environmental issues, etc.).
