November 24, 2020

BINGHAMTON, NY – Members of Leonidas Chapter 77 in Binghamton, NY continue their efforts giving back to their community this holiday season by promoting and self-funding a coat drive for needy local school children. With the preliminary work done by James Anastos, who reached out to two school guidance counselors to discuss the idea and receive the needed coat sizes for the K-5 classes. After identifying the needed boys and girls sizes for K-5 and 6-8th grade classes, Ananstos created a worksheet and assigned chapter members sets of the needed coats to purchase. Members then headed out to local stores and bought the coats.

On November 18, Leonidas Chapter 77 President Chris Papastrat, Vice President Alex Kermidas, James Anastos, and Chapter Secretary Anastasios Stefos presented the principals of Woodrow Wilson and East Middle School with the coats for their schools. A total of 45 coats were presented with 25 coats for K-5 classes at Woodrow Wilson School and 20 coats for 6-8th graders at East Middle School.
