AHEPA Chapter 445 and DOP Chapter 332 Annual New Year’s Scholarship Luncheon

UPPER DARBY, PA – AHEPA Chapter 445 Thermopylae of Upper Darby, PA, and Daughters of Penelope Chapter 332 held their annual New Year’s Scholarship Luncheon on January 2 at the St. Demetrios Church community hall in Upper Darby. Thanks to their generous donors this year, they were able to award eight exemplary Greek-American college students with an AHEPA chapter scholarship for displaying academic excellence and achievement in their programs of study.

For over 50 years, AHEPA Chapter 445 has continued its annual tradition of awarding academic scholarships to students of our local Greek community in honor of their pursuit of higher education. This continues their service in AHEPA’s mission of philanthropy, education and “defending Hellenism.”

In philanthropy, they strive to continually support the community through donation-supports in various campaigns, and by also supporting families in need during the holiday season.
