BINGHAMTON, NY – Leonidas AHEPA Chapter 77 of Binghamton once again demonstrated its commitment to community service by hosting its highly successful 4th Annual Coat Drive. This event, now a hallmark in the chapter’s yearly calendar, stands as the largest community initiative undertaken by the Leonidas AHEPA Chapter 77.
The coat drive, a testament to the chapter’s dedication to making a positive impact on the local community, saw collaboration with nine local schools this year. This partnership expanded the reach of the drive, ensuring that the warmth and comfort of winter coats reached those who needed it most.
A special note of gratitude is extended to Visions Federal Credit Union for their invaluable support. Their contribution played a crucial role in the success of the coat drive, highlighting the power of community partnerships in creating meaningful change. Gratitude was also expressed to all the members of the community who help make the chapter’s coat drive a success, year after year.
As the chapter reflects on the success of the 4th annual coat drive, it also looks forward to future opportunities to serve the community and strengthen the bonds that make Binghamton a truly special place. The Leonidas AHEPA Chapter 77 remains dedicated to its mission of philanthropy, community service, and the preservation of Hellenic culture, embodying the spirit of giving back to those in need.
