AHEPA Provides Additional Aid to
Flint Water Crisis Victims
Michigan Ahepans deliver second truckload of 1,944 milk
gallons on Oxi Day
Michigan Ahepans delivered their second round of aid to help victims of the
Flint water crisis, announced Supreme President Andrew C. Zachariades.
Ahepans donated and delivered 1,944 gallons of milk to the Flint community, via the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, October 28, 2016. AHEPA
members donated the same quantity of milk on March 25, 2016.
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.
"Although the Flint water crisis is no longer in the headlines, the need to
aid the victims remains," said Craig Theros, who chairs the "Milk for Flint"
drive. "AHEPA has not forgotten them and will continue to offer aid."
Theros thanked Flint Kroger #404, Corunna Road, and Store Manager
Pat McGuire, who helped with the milk's cost and the coordination of its
delivery. Theros said a third delivery is planned for December 2016.
WJRT-TV 12 provided media coverage of the donation.
"We commend our Ahepans and the American Hellenic community
of Michigan for their continued commitment to the people of Flint,"
Zachariades said. "Service and philanthropy are at the heart of our mission
and vision, and we must work together to assist the victims of this crisis. We
ask the American Hellenic community to consider helping us by making a
donation to AHEPA District Ten, which is spearheading this effort."
Take Action. How You Can Help.
To make a donation to ensure additional aid is provided to the Flint community, please make your donation payable to: AHEPA District 10. Address:
Craig A. Theros, 284 Mason Ave., Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

In 2015, an AHEPA family leadership delegation,
headed by then-Supreme President Phillip Frangos,
visited Apostolos Andreas Monastery to survey
AHEPA welcomes the completion of renovations to the historic Apostolos Andreas
Monastery located at the northeastern tip
of Cyprus' Karpas peninsula, announced
Supreme President Andrew C. Zachariades.
"The bi-communal effort, under the lead
of the UN Development Programme Technical
Committee on Cultural Heritage and implemented by the Programme's Partnership for
the Future, that led to the successful completion of the monastery's restoration, is to be
lauded." Zachariades said.
The supreme president added his gratitude to the U.S. Embassy in Nicosia, and
specifically the U.S. Agency for International
Development (USAID), for their role during
the restoration process. USAID was one of the
financial contributors to the project.
AHEPA first visited Apostolos Andreas on
a historic goodwill mission in May 2001. Most
recently, the AHEPA family surveyed the restoration efforts during a Leadership Excursion
in May 2015.
