While Taste of Tucker is a fun and family oriented community event, our dual goal is to give back and make Tucker and the surrounding area a better place. So, each year we donate proceeds to worthy causes.
NETWorks is a cooperative Christian ministry with persons in need in the Northlake-Embry Hills-Tucker area. We are a group of churches, groups, businesses and individuals committed to assist in meeting urgent needs related especially to housing and utilities.
Utilizing community and partner church resources, we are working to create a “safety net that works.” This safety net includes material assistance, advocacy, spiritual assistance, and referral to other appropriate agencies and services, including a food pantry that specializes in ready to eat meals.
Camp Kudzu makes life better for children and teens living with type 1 diabetes, also helping their families, so they can gain confidence, make connections with others like them, and increase their knowledge.
The organization offers week-long overnight Summer Camps, a week-long Sprouts Day Camp, Family Camps and Teen Programs. Each program emphasizes fun AND diabetes education.
Camp Kudzu is a Georgia-based nonprofit, serving children all over the state of Georgia. These children with diabetes come from all races, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds. There is no cure for type 1 diabetes, yet. It will not disappear with age or a change in diet. But there is good news! Children who learn to take care of their diabetes avoid life threatening complications from diabetes, including heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, vascular disease and depression. At Camp Kudzu we like to say, “Till there’s a cure, there’s camp!”
