Greek Orthodox Parish Donates Thanksgiving Meals to Needy Families

November 28, 2020

BOSTON – WCVB 5 recently ran a story highlighting the generosity of the Metropolis of Boston and St. Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington, MA. For the past 25 years the parish has worked together to donate Thanksgiving turkeys and other food items to those who need it most. This year, to comply with social distancing requirements, the Metropolis Center in Brookline hosted the preparation of filling bags and unpacking boxes. Working in shifts of 25, community members young and old came to package the Thanksgiving meals.  

The community raised thousands of dollars to purchase the items and all in all, this year’s event turned out larger than any other year, giving out four hundred and twenty-five dinners and offering the opportunity for families to enjoy a special Thanksgiving.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
