Washington, D.C.- The Supreme President of AHEPA, Ike Gulas, in a statement expressed satisfaction over the response of the AHEPANs toy the Greek fires crisis.
“Welcome to AHEPA Headquarters, where almost every office, conference room and corridor is stacked with care packages. It’s moments like this that make me so proud to be an Ahepan!
I want to personally thank our friends at Olympic Airlines who have generously offered to ship the care packages directly to Greece! Please remember Olympic when planning your next vacation or making your flight arrangements to our 86th Annual Supreme Convention, this upcoming July in Athens.
Next, I want to thank all of you who have already sent us packages full of clothes, shoes, and personal health care items. This relief effort was only successful because of you!
I also want to thank all of you who generously contributed to the AHEPA Emergency Greek Fire Relief Fund online. To date, we have received hundreds of donations totalling over $50,000. 100% of this money is going directly to the fire victims in Greece. AHEPA is covering all of the overhead and processing costs to channel your money directly to the families and communities in Greece.
Lastly, on behalf of the Supreme and District Governors, I offer you another chance to help AHEPA provide direct relief to the fire victims in Greece. Over the next few weeks we will work within the traditional AHEPA network to move the Emergency Greek Fire Relief Fund from our current total of $50,000 to reach our initial goal of $100,000. This goal will not be possible without your help online. If you’ve given already and can give again, please do so now. If you can forward this newsletter to your friends and email lists, you can help us reach out to others who have yet to help. Together, I know we can reach this important charitable goal!”
