On the week of Christmas, the Hellenic Relief Foundation and their partner organization held their monthly distribution at their headquarters in Athens, in partnership with the Social Committee of the Athenian Society. The food packages, provided to financially weakened families and single households, contained pasta, rice, flour, orzo, oil, and more. In total, around 360 food packages were distributed. In addition, food was provided to the Meropeio Nursing Home of Athens, the St. Nicholas Foundation, the Special Needs School of Pireaus, while pre-packaged meals were provided to the homeless on Christmas Day.

Alongside the regular monthly offerings, extra items were provided to ensure that the beneficiaries had all the staples for their holiday table, ahead of Christmas and New Years, including turkey, chicken, potatoes, sweets, coffee, butter, and more. The distribution was conducted under COVID-compliant protocols, including taking the temperature upon entering the premises, and providing either proof of vaccination, antibodies, or a negative rapid test. It was organized under the direction of Ms. Maria Siourdi, director of the H.R.F’s partner organization, and with the assistance of volunteers including Soula Belli, Antonia Pantouvaki, Emy Spanou, Gianni Lambrou, and Nota Alamagkou.

As part of the distribution, and ahead of the holidays, the children of the beneficiaries were provided with new clothes, complements of Frangos SA (Marasil), as well as new shoes, provided by the companies Buffalo Plast Minoglou, Meridian, and Parex, while L’Oreal provided hand sanitizer. The beneficiaries were also able to obtain clothing for themselves, donated by the omogenia through a number of Philoptochos groups from parishes in New Jersey, as well as individuals who support the H.R.F’s efforts.

The distribution efforts are made possible by the monthly support of the H.R.F.’s corporate donors including the N. Konstantopoulou Group, Agrovim, the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, OTE Group, the Greek Parliament, Food Bank, Loulis Mills, Barba Stathis, Palliria, Coca-Cola, the 2nd Municipal Market of Athens, Harisiadis Group, Kamilaris SA, FrieslandCampina, Tottis Bingo, the family of Aspasia Karakalpaki, and others.
