AHEPA Delivers Additional Aid to Thousands of Flint Residents
Ahepans delivered their sixth semitruck load of milk, totaling nearly 2,000
gallons, to victims of the Flint Water
Crisis, June 13, 2019.
The AHEPA family teamed-up with
Flint's Catholic Charities to provide
milk to a non-stop line of more than
470 cars of Flint residents during a
rainy 2-1/2 hour period. The cars represented households comprised of nearly
2,000 persons, including 857 children.
"We commend the Michigan AHEPA
family, the broader American Hellenic
community and anyone who donated
their time or funds to provide muchneeded aid to people of Flint," said
then-Supreme President George Loucas,
who attended and distributed gallons of
milk. "Service and philanthropy are at
the heart of our mission and vision, and
we must work together to assist the victims of this crisis. I truly was humbled
and proud to participate."
"We would like to thank Flint's
Catholic Charities, led by Mary
Stevenson, for teaming up with AHEPA
to allow our many volunteers to efficiently distribute the milk to the needy
Flint residents from their Center for Hope
facility," then-Supreme Governor Craig
Theros, who serves as the "Milk for Flint"
program chairman, said. "AHEPA would
also like to thank Kim Green, manager of
Kroger store 404, for the great milk price
and the coordination of the delivery to
the distribution point in downtown Flint."
He continued, "Although the Flint
water crisis is no longer in the headlines,
the need to aid the victims remains.
AHEPA has not forgotten them and will
continue to offer aid."
Theros added that leftover gallons
of milk were donated to the Center

for Hope Soup Kitchen, Greater Holy
Temple Church of God in Christ neighborhood giveaway and four smaller
churches on the east side of Flint.
"Nothing was wasted," he said.
Three media outlets were on-hand to
report on the event.

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.
The initial milk drive occurred
March 25, 2016. To date, the AHEPA
Automotive District 10 has raised
almost $25,000 and has distributed
nearly 12,000 gallons of milk through
the "Milk for Flint" program. Much of
the funds were donated by the members
of the AHEPA and the Daughters of
Penelope. However, many donations
also came from individuals as well as
organizations from around the country.
A seventh "Milk for Flint" drive is
planned for September 26.
