Greek Orthodox Welfare Centre's Christmas appeal

On its 15th year the appeal supports Greek Australian households in need


 The Greek Welfare Centre at the Holy Monastery of Axion Esti in Northcote, along with more than 20 Greek Orthodox Parishes and the support of schools and volunteers unite again this festive season in order to help families facing financial difficulties.

The joint venture, which takes place for more than 15 years now, during Christmas and Easter period, supports Greek Australian households by distributing mainly food, as well as toys for young children.
Community members and Greek Australian businesses and organisations are called to contribute to the good cause by bringing in toys in good condition or non-perishable goods, such as oil, canned food, pasta and rice to the collection points.

These include - apart from the Greek Welfare Centre at the Holy Monastery of 'Axion Estin' at 7 Hartington Street, Northcote - any Greek Orthodox Church, St John's Greek Orthodox College at 21 Railway Place West Preston and Oakleigh Grammar at77-81 Willesden Road, Oakleigh.
The Christmas food hamper appeal started, as every year, around October and is still on until the week before Christmas.

As Edmond Kaderoglou - one of the coordinators of the activity- told Neos Kosmos, this is a small gesture, yet it can prove that diverse groups within the Greek Australian Community are motivated to aid people in need and are eager to respond to the philantropic appeal.
A significant number of volunteers, with young students among them, offer their time and efforts in order to ease the storage of food and distribution to the families.

Anyone interested in volunteering or for further information please contact Edmond Kaderoglou or Ioannis Pilalidis at the Greek Welfare Centre on 9486 6588.
