The Order of AHEPA and Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas visited tornado-ravaged areas of Kentucky to provide critical aid supplies for victims, relief workers and first-responders on December 21.
Daughters of Penelope Grand President Kathy Bizoukas and AHEPA National Housing Corporation Board Vice President John Miller of Nashville, Tennessee, accompanied Kokotas to Dawson Springs — one of the hardest-hit areas — where they distributed food, water and sundries valued at approximately $2,500.
“The scale of the devastation is unimaginable,” Kokotas said. “Many families have lost their homes, their vehicles, and irreplaceable personal items. The people of the Midwest and Southeastern United States will need every ounce of assistance to recover and rebuild.”
AHEPA has created an emergency relief fund to provide financial assistance to those in the devastated town.
“Under the AHEPA Cares program, we must do our part to help,” Kokotas said. “We are urging our AHEPA chapters, members, and the community to come together to provide assistance through our Emergency Relief Fund as we have traditionally when natural disasters strike.”
AHEPA Chapter 343, Nashville, Music City Diner and Grecian Pizza made contributions that provided for approximately 500 sandwiches to be distributed during the visit.
