"Feeding the Hungry"
Philoptochos is participating in the National Philoptochos initiative committed to serve 1,500,000 meals nationwide by the National Clergy Laity in July 2020. Our Philoptochos served over 27,000 meals between July 2016 and June 2018. You can help this cause by filling the container in the Narthex. It costs $2 for a sack lunch. To become a part of this OUTREACH PROGRAM, or donate product, please contact Vicki Karagianis at 773-327-3194 or Vonnie Karafotias at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's help those in need!
