“We are thrilled that for the second year, the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta was awarded best local nonprofit and its overnight camp, Camp Barney Medintz, was named best sleepaway camp,” CEO Jared Powers said.

“The MJCCA connects more than 60,000 people every year through its more than 10,000 programs. Through our innovative offerings, people become lifelong learners, participate in activities they love or have always wanted to try, and celebrate holidays together, while along the way developing new friendships and creating lasting memories. We welcome everyone to become a part of our vibrant community, and we extend a heartfelt thank-you to the community for this recognition.”
