The Hellenic Relief Foundation organized its annual distribution of school supplies on September 11, 2020.  The event took place in Athens at its facility with the help of its partner organization, ELETHSY. The following items were distributed to around 230 school children accompanied by their parents;  including bookbags, stationery, pens, pencils, etc., as well as coronavirus essentials including hand sanitizer and masks. Cookies, sweets, juices, and more were also offered. Sponsors for this distribution include the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, N. Konstantopoulou Group, MAX STORES, SKAGIAS, NEOXART, Attica Publications, as well as our volunteers, who ensured there were bookbags and stationery. The hand sanitizer was offered by L’OREAL Paris, the masks provided by ELETHSY with the support of its volunteers, and the sweets, cookies, etc. offered by Food Bank, Papadopoulou Biscuits, and Coca Cola.

It is worth noting that one of our beneficiaries, Christos F. Spatoulas, who entered first at a school at the University of West Attica, was gifted an annual unlimited travel card, donated by H.R.F. board member Mr. K. Zachariadis, while ELETHSY, through a donation by Mrs. Eirini Xakousti, will provide him with a laptop, gifted by Miami-based company Italkraft, to aid him with his studies.

The distribution was carried out in compliance with all coronavirus health and safety regulations, and in the presence of the H.R.F. board member Dr. Efthimios Daniskas and his wife, Mrs. Sakis Kypraiou, Mrs. Irini Xakousti, as well as the director of the H.R.F.’s partner organization, Ms. Maria Siourdi, and the volunteers Soula Belli, Antonia Pantouvaki, and Emy Spanou.


The Hellenic Relief Foundation Inc. is a non profit organization (501(c)3) and was founded in 2012, with the goal of raising funds in the United States to be used towards the purchase of food items, and other basic necessities for the underprivileged in Greece that have increased in numbers due to the current crisis. To date, around 655,000 dollars have been remitted, and with donations within Greece, as well as volunteered social and medicinal services, the true value of the aid is roughly 1.5 million dollars. The expenses of the HRF are covered by board members. For more information:
