National Philoptochos President Georgia Skeadas is pleased to announce the newly revamped website for the National Philoptochos Society which is available at www.philoptochos.org or by accessing Philoptochos under the Ministry and Outreach Tab of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America website www.goarch.org.
The website is designed to increase local, national and international awareness of the scope of the charitable work of the Society. It also serves as a resource for the close to 28,000 Philoptochos members and the 480 Philoptochos chapters throughout the United States.
New features include a “Chapter President’s Alert” with content links to the latest news and announcements. Current information is available about the National Philoptochos Society and its numerous National Committees and broad level of commitments to myriad national and international ministries. The Ministry and Outreach section contains descriptions of Commitments, Programs and Projects including a list of charitable donations of $8,530,419.00 for the period of January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2007.
A key feature of the website is a direct link to the Social Services Department which contains an important Resource Information Database as well as articles and guidebooks to educate and inform chapters and those seeking assistance.
President Skeadas acknowledges the tremendous work of the Public Relations Co-Chairs Barbara Pasalis and Christine Karavites and their committee in launching the Philoptochos website, the enormous contribution of Mr. Nick Sialmas, President of the St. Nicholas parish in Newburgh, NY, who provided his outstanding expertise to create the new Philoptochos website and the continued support of the Office of Internet Ministries of the Archdiocese.
