Philadelphia-Area Volunteers Plan 11th Annual Benefit for IOCC

September 10, 2022

DEPTFORD, NJ – Continuing the tradition of more than a decade, Philadelphia-area volunteers are hosting their 11th Annual Banquet to Benefit IOCC at Adelphia Restaurant in Deptford, NJ, on October 30, supporting the worldwide humanitarian work of International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC).

For the last 11 years, the all-volunteer Greater Philadelphia Committee of IOCC, chaired by Tony Pantazopoulos, has organized annual benefits supporting emergency relief and development programs both in the U.S. and around the world.

Volunteers from various Orthodox jurisdictions make up the committee, reflecting wide support for IOCC’s mission across the area. The Philadelphia-area event is part of IOCC’s nationwide fundraising campaign, comprising almost exclusively volunteer-led local events.

Tickets and sponsorships are available at www.iocc.org/philadelphia.

Nationwide, individual volunteers and groups like the Philadelphia-area committee raise over $700,000 annually in support of IOCC’s global work.

International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is the humanitarian relief and development agency of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops of the United States of America. Since its inception in 1992, IOCC has provided more than $771 million in humanitarian relief and sustainable development programs in over 60 countries worldwide. Today, IOCC applies its expertise in humanitarian response to natural and manmade crises in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, offering assistance based solely on need.
