AHEPA FAMILY NEWS

AHEPA Delivers Fourth
Round of Aid to Flint
Forty Michigan
AHEPA family
members delivered their fourth
semi-truck load
of milk, totaling  1,944 gallons of milk to
the victims of
the Flint Water
Crisis, June 6.
2017. On this occasion, the AHEPA family teamed-up with
Flint's Catholic Charities to serve 1,600 Flint residents in
need. Together, volunteers organized a pick-up point with
tents and tables. They also unloaded trucks of food and
milk. In addition, the volunteers helped to direct cars to
the pick-up locations where AHEPA family members were
among those who hand-delivered the goods.
Although the Flint water crisis is no longer in the headlines, the need to aid the victims remains," said Brother
Craig Theros, who chairs the "Milk for Flint" drive. "AHEPA
has not forgotten them and will continue to offer aid."
To date, AHEPA has delivered 7,776 gallons of milk.
AHEPA thanks Kroger Company, especially Pat Coe, manager, Flint Kroger #404, for making the deliveries possible.
The first milk drive occurred March 25, 2016.
Why milk?  According to state public health departments, optimal nutrition can play an important role in
minimizing the amount of lead absorbed and stored in
bones, especially in children. When minerals such as calcium and iron are deficient, lead absorption is increased.

Statement on Retirement
of U.S. Representative Niki
Tsongas
Supreme President Carl
Hollister issued the following statement on
August 9, 2017:
" C o n g r e s s wo m a n
Niki Tsongas announced
her retirement from
Congress today. She has
been an outstanding
public servant and has
set a fine example for
others wishing to pursue
public service to emulate.
"During her ten years
of public service in the
United States House of
Representatives, she has
been a staunch champion and advocate for the American Hellenic
community as an active and vocal member of the Congressional
Hellenic Caucus and the Congressional Hellenic Israeli Alliance.
Among her many accomplishments, Congresswoman Tsongas
ascended to become a senior member of the House Armed
Services Committee.
"We are grateful for her public service. We are confident her
late husband, former United States Senator Paul Tsongas, would
have been proud. She will be sorely missed, but until her retirement at the end of her term, we will continue to work with her on
the public policy priorities of the American Hellenic community.
We wish the congresswoman all the best in her future endeavors."
