Philoptochos Donation 

The Ladies Philoptochos Society is a philanthropic organization of the Greek Orthodox Church whose mission is to provide aid to the poor, the homeless, the sick and the disadvantaged. Our Ladies work very hard at each coffee hour to set up and serve the purchased food items. Your generosity in making a donation to us in memory of your loved one would be greatly appreciated. Please consider making a generous donation in addition to the cost of the coffee hour to this worthy group in our church. For tax purposes, a letter acknowledging your donation will be provided.
