Meet our Humanitarian Honoree
A competitor who strives for excellence on the field, in the boardroom and most importantly in the community describes Eric Merriweather at his core.
In 2002, Mr. Merriweather founded The African American Association of Georgia, Inc. (AAAG). The execution of his vision has touched the lives of people of all ethnicity in the Greater Atlanta Area. Struggles have become his triumphs. The goals of The AAAG, Inc. since its inception has always been to have programs, that mentor, educate, promote health and wellness and last but not least, feed the hungry. Each of these is crucial in fostering the sustainability of families as they become whole again. Who would have thought almost 15 years ago working out of his garage, he would be on this platform. His audacity to dream began his quest by initially serving 30 families, has touched 4,000 over a15 year’s period, and is now consistently serving 1100+ families each month.
