The Hellenic Relief Foundation July Distribution

ATHENS — The Hellenic Relief Foundation and their partner organization held their monthly distribution at their headquarters in Athens, in partnership with the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, from June 28th through the 30th. The food packages contained non-perishables (pasta, rice, flour, oil, etc.), and were provided to financially weakened families and single households that are supported on a monthly basis. In total, around 340 food packages were distributed, including gift certificates for food purchases, compliments of the N. Konstantopoulou Group and Agrovim. In addition to the distribution to the beneficiaries, various institutions and foundations were provided nutritional support, including the Special Needs School of Piraeus and the Meropeio Nursing Home of Athens.

This distribution continued the dissemination of clothing, provided by the omogenia through a number of Philoptochos groups from parishes in New Jersey, which were in turn offered to the beneficiaries.

Since 2012, the distributions efforts are made possible by the monthly support of the HRF, while corporate donors for this distribution included the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, N. Konstantopoulou Group, Food Bank, Arla Foods, Loulis Mills, Agrovim, and Palliria.

The COVID-compliant distribution was organized under the direction of Ms. Maria Siourdi, director of the H.R.F's partner organization, and with the assistance of volunteers Soula Belli, Antonia Pantouvaki, and Emy Spanou.
