Eighth Milk for Flint Delivery Earns City's Recognition
Ahepans delivered their eighth truckload of milk to victims of
the Flint Water Crisis, July 16, 2020, earning special recognition
from the City of Flint for a service campaign that began in 2016,
announced Supreme President George G. Horiates. To date,
AHEPA has raised more than $30,000 to donate 15,552 gallons
of milk to aid the victims.
Following the July 16 delivery of 1,944 gallons of milk,
which served 1,218 persons, Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley and
Michigan State Representative Cynthia Neeley presented Past
Supreme Governor Craig Theros, organizer of the "Milk for Flint"
campaign, with a proclamation stating, "Thursday, July 16, 2020
to be AHEPA Day in the City of Flint, Michigan."
"We commend the Michigan AHEPA family, the broader
American Hellenic community, and anyone who donated their
time or funds to provide much-needed aid to people of Flint in a
safe and responsible manner during a pandemic," said Horiates.
"Their recognition by state and city officials is well deserved.
Service and philanthropy are at the heart of our mission and
vision, and we must work together to assist the victims of this
ongoing crisis."

"We would like to thank Flint's Catholic Charities 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," Theros said. "AHEPA would also like to thank
Kroger store 404, for the great milk price and the coordination of
the delivery to the distribution point in downtown Flint. Finally,
we sincerely appreciate the help of Tom and Dean Yeotis for
coordinating the presentation at City Hall even though it has
been closed officially since the start of the pandemic."
He continued, "Although the Flint water crisis does not garner significant media attention anymore, the need to aid the
victims remains. The AHEPA family has not forgotten them and
will continue to offer aid." Theros added that any leftover gallons
of milk are donated to local charitable organizations.
"Nothing is wasted," he said.
Three television stations and one radio station covered 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 of Michigan has raised more than
$30,000 and has distributed 15,552 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 ninth "Milk for Flint" drive is planned.
