“The images and stories coming from Greece are terrifying,” Supreme President Kokotas said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all who have been affected by this tragedy. We are extremely grateful to Greece’s first responders and to all nations that have offered support and assistance. We will stand with Greece as we did in 2007, 2018, and during other times of great need.”
|At last week’s Supreme Convention, AHEPA presented a donation of 159,000 Euros, funds raised following Greece’s wildfires of 2018, to Evangelismos Hospital for the completion of a burn unit.|
In 2007, AHEPA transported 270 care packages totaling $250,000 worth of goods and raised an additional $250,000 in financial assistance for victims of Greece’s wildfires.
|Founded in 1922 in Atlanta, Georgia, on the principles that undergirded its fight for civil rights and against discrimination, bigotry, and hatred felt at the hands of the Ku Klux Klan, AHEPA is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes with more than 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Europe. AHEPA’s mission is to promote the ancient Greek ideals of Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence through community service and volunteerism.
