In light of their trip to Greece this summer for our Greek America Corps programs, our 27 North American volunteers have launched a fundraiser with a goal to raise $7,500 in direct support of our Greek charity partners.
Our volunteers come from throughout North America and include undergraduate students, post-graduates, full-time professionals, actors and artists, among others.
Each program has a specific mission and involves volunteer work with accredited Greek non-profit organizations whose work addresses issues such as homelessness, food insecurity, unaccompanied refugee minors and disenfranchised Greek youth.
The aim of these programs is to instill the Greek values of philanthropy and philotimo in all participants. At the same time, our efforts will provide critical humanitarian aid to non-profit organizations in Greece.
Our partners include the Emfasis Foundation, Boroume, Greek Council for Refugees and we4all in Athens as well as METAdrasi and Kivotos Tou Kosmou (Ark of the World) on the island of Chios.
Our volunteers will decide themselves how to allocate the funds after determining the need of each charity partner, giving them the opportunity to truly live philanthropy from the beginning of the process.
