Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 Supports Local Community

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 of Middletown has undertaken a number of events to support the families which have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and to celebrate the front-line responders who have been risking their own lives and health to protect the well-being of our community. 

This past week the chapter raised $2,000 to help two individuals, a member of the Hellenic community who had been hospitalized for over a month recovering from a severe attack of COVID-19, and an Ahepan recovering from a major illness which has significantly reduced his income. Each individual was given a check for $1,000. 

The second event was the organizing of a “gyros for heroes” food donation to the Orange Regional Medical Center (ORMC) nurses and healthcare workers. Five hundred gyro platters were made under the sponsorship of the Hudson Odysseus chapter. AHEPA brother Gus Lambrou was the event organizer. Assisting in the effort was Irma Lambrou, Catherine Blumrath, and Tonjia and Tony Vikos. The ORMC staff were extremely grateful for the gift of the traditional Greek dish. 

Lastly, a food and household item drive for local needy families is being organized with a target donation date of Memorial Day weekend.

“Where there is a need and challenge to the well-being of our community the generous members of our AHEPA chapter are ready, in the best tradition of the brotherhood, to do our part,” the Hudson Odysseus Chapter said in a statement.
