Specifically, the programs, “Offer”, “Change”, “Participate”, have the main goal of meeting the operational needs of institutions, improving and adding the necessary infrastructure, as well as creation Corporate Responsibility programs for interested companies respectively. All three programs come to contribute to the achievement of the main goal of Network, which is none other than the promotion of social solidarity and assistance in practice
The President of Network, Mr. Nikolaos Pentzos, speaking about the work of the administration so far and summarizing the actions that have been implemented in the last five years, said: “Our goal, from the first moment, was to be the bridge between companies and organizations, institutions and institutions of Northern Greece, matching the needs with the offer. I can tell you for sure that we have achieved a lot in a few years, supporting more than 100 institutions to date. I can tell you with the same confidence that our goal as a Network has not been fulfilled. “What we want is to create a real culture of supply and to make Thessaloniki the most solidarity city in Greece.”
