As Mayor of Apokoronas, I feel the need to warmly thank our Norwegian Friends "HELP APOKORONAS" and especially Ms BODIL HAMRE -AGGELIKI and TORRE-ELIAS ' her husband, for their generous donation to the  Municipality of Apokoronou.

The Social Grocery Store in Nippos is a source of relief for our financially challenged fellow citizens and any help is valuable. Let us not forget that, in the difficult times we live in, cooperation and a sense of social responsibility prove to be the best help in any endeavor to meet the challenges we are faced with every day.

In addition, our Norwegian Friends 'HELP APOKORONAS' team has been one of the most valuable supporters of this important social structure through its five year supply of footwear, food and essentials and will continue to be in practice. For these reasons, we warmly thank our friend BODIL, all the sponsors of the Group, and wish them all thanks for the

social work they have been providing for so many years with love, discretion and sensitivity to the Apokoronas community. Merry Christmas !!

It is managed by a 7-member Board of Directors and is active in the areas of Social Protection, solidarity, Health, education, environment and culture.

It has founded the "SOCIAL GROCERY” thus enhancing the lives of nearly 400 families each month by organizing large campaigns and events to collect food, with the help of the volunteers of the program "FEED A FAMILY". It has founded the "Social Frontisterio" which offers free lessons to pupils. It has organised a group of blood donors and relevant actions such as the creation of a blood bank. It has reorganised and upgraded its three day nurseries (Armeni, Maza, Mouri).

Η Κοινωφελής Επιχείρηση του Δήμου Αποκορώνου προέρχεται από την συγχώνευση των κοινωφελών επιχειρήσεων των πρώην Δήμων Αρμένων, Γεωργιούπολης & Κρυονερίδας.

Διοικείται από 7μελές Δ.Σ. και δραστηριοποιείται στους τομείς της κοινωνικής προστασίας, αλληλεγγύης, υγείας, παιδείας, περιβάλλοντος & πολιτισμού.

Σκοπός της επιχείρησης είναι να απλώσει ένα δίκτυο προστασίας για όλες τις ευπαθείς ομάδες, με την ανάδειξη των υπαρχουσών δομών και την δημιουργία νέων. Ίδρυσε το ΚΟΙΝΟΝΙΚΟ ΠΑΝΤΟΠΩ΄ΛΕΙΟ, ενισχύοντας έτσι 370 περίπου, οικογένειες κάθε μήνα ενώ παράλληλα οργανώνει μεγάλες καμπάνιες και εκδηλώσεις για την συλλογή τροφίμων, με την βοήθεια των εθελοντών του προγράμματος "FEED A FAMILY PROGECT" . Ίδρυσε το ΚΟΙΝΟΝΙΚΟ ΦΡΟΝΤΙΣΤΗΡΙΟ με δωρεάν μαθήματα σε μαθητές. Οργάνωσε ομάδα ΕΘΕΛΟΝΤΩΝ ΑΙΜΟΔΟΤΩΝ με σχετικές δράσεις όπως η ίδρυση ΤΡΑΠΕΖΑΣ ΑΙΜΑΤΟΣ. Αναδιοργάνωσε και αναβάθμισε τους 3 ΠΑΙΔΙΚΟΥΣ ΣΤΑΘΜΟΥΣ (Αρμένων, Μάζας, Μουρί). Ενίσχυσε το πρόγραμμα "ΒΟΗΘΕΙΑ ΣΤΟ ΣΠΙΤΙ" του πρώην Δήμος Αρμένων με στόχο " Βοήθεια στο Σπίτι" όλου του Δήμου.

Τέλος Οργανώνει Δράσεις που αφορούν τον Πολιτισμό ( όπως η τιμητική βραδιά για την συγγραφέα Αλκυόνη Παπαδάκη) και το περιβάλλον συνεργαζόμενη με περιβαλλοντικές οργανώσεις όπως η WWF, ενώ \συμμετέχει σε μεγάλες καμπάνιες όπως το "Let's Do It GREECE"
