"Feeding the Hungry"
Philoptochos is once again participating in a National Philoptochos initiative that is committed to serve 1,500,000 meals nationwide by the National Clergy Laity in July 2020. Our Philoptochos served over 27,000 meals between July 2016 and June 2018. You can help with this cause by filling the container in the Narthex. It costs $2 for a sack lunch.
