With Great Sadness

With great sadness, the National Board of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. announces the falling asleep in the Lord of Helen Lavorata.

Helen served as the Director of the National office for over 20 years. She was a kind, generous and much-loved employee of the Society.

We pray that our Patron Saints Cosmas and Damian will watch over her. Please keep Helen’s beloved husband, daughter and family in your prayers.

May Helen’s memory be eternal.

 National Philoptochos disburses
to IOCC earmarked for
Hurricane Relief in the Bahamas 

In response to the absolute devastation in the Bahamas resulting from Hurricane Dorian, the National Philoptochos Executive Board has approved an immediate $25,000 disbursement to IOCC earmarked for hurricane disaster relief in the Bahamas. The National Philoptochos Board thanks all chapters for their generous and continued donations to our Emergency and Hurricane funds, which enable Philoptochos to respond immediately when these crises occur.

Donations for Bahamas Hurricane Relief 

Many chapters have inquired about how they can send donations for Bahamas Hurricane Relief. In response, the National Philoptochos has established the IOCC Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.

Please make checks payable to National Philoptochos. The memo line should read “IOCC Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.” National Philoptochos will keep these donations segregated and forward them in their entirety to IOCC for use in the Bahamas. 

Please keep our sisters and brothers in the Bahamas in your prayers.
