Despite the pandemic, the chapter has distributed
over $55,000 in aid to more than 30 organizations
since March 2020. Worth noting is that 85%, or
$47,000, was given to groups that had an immediate impact on people's lives. Examples of recipients
include: area soup kitchens and food pantries around
the region, including the Food Bank of NWI; assistance to the homeless and shelters for at risk families
and troubled children, clothing the poor, and muchneeded equipment for cancer and special needs kids.
The chapter also provided gifts to poor children at
Christmas and supported charities that offer rental
assistance and mortgage and utility payments.

In December, the chapter presented three donations of $1,000
each to area organizations to
assist with their holiday support.
The donations were presented
to: St. George Greek Orthodox
Church, Schererville, The Food
Bank of Northwest Indiana,
Merrillville, Ind.; and the St.
Joseph Carmelite Home that provides a safe place for children in crisis from birth to 18, East Chicago,
Ind. Pictured: Food Bank of Northwest Indiana President and CEO

AHEPA Chapter 260, Chicago
The chapter had a private tour at the Illinois Holocaust Museum, arranged by Chapter Secretary
Michael Pilafas. Due to Covid restrictions, the brothers and their wives toured the museum in
groups of four with masks, each with their own docent. The tour featured a large full floor exhibit
on the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg celebrating her life as an advocate for human rights and
later as the second female Supreme Court Justice. Her trailblazing story came alive through an
exhibit that featured synopses of her major Supreme Court decisions, memorabilia from her childhood home and Supreme Court chambers, and her law school photos that showed a handful of
women among all the graduating men. The tour also featured an exhibit on the Nazi march in
Skokie, Illinois in the 60s and the public's response. Participants watched a film which depicted genocides from Auschwitz to Rwanda
and viewed the amazing artwork from a holocaust survivor from a German concentration camp who cut his artwork into small pieces
and reassembled it when liberated. Everyone who attended felt enlightened and enriched by the experience. In November, the chapter
organized a socially distanced walk through the world-famous Morton Arboretum to observe the fall colors and its unique Troll Statues.
