Philoptochos Assembly Highlights Successful Year
The Metropolis of Pittsburgh Chapters continued in 2018 the Philoptochos’ mission of serving our fellow man. They actively engaged in the national projects and worked within the Metropolis with our own special causes. Through staunch and steadfast participation in the National Philoptochos commitments by the parishes and Metropolises, the National Philoptochos was able to disburse a total of $1,737,511.00 in 2017. They have also collected $106,710 to date for the victims of the devastating and deadly wildfires in Attica, Greece. These funds are being distributed directly to those people in need.
The Metropolis of Pittsburgh Philoptochos Society has continued the Feed the Hungry program with remarkable success. The ladies of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Akron, Ohio were honored at the 2018 Biennial National Philoptochos Convention with the distinction of serving the 1,000,000th Meal. Congratulations to all our faithful and committed members of our Metropolis Philoptochos who have heard the call to aid those less fortunate than themselves.
