The Philoptochos Society of Saint Andrew is part of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc., the duly accredited women's philanthropic society of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The literal translation of the word Philoptochos is 'Friend of the Poor'. Our mission is twofold. We strive to (a) indiscriminately assist those in need, whether it is locally, nationally or globally and (b) to promote the Greek Orthodox faith and traditions. Through various fundraisers we raise the resources needed for our charitable work and the growth of our own community. We also find the time to have fun and socialize. The work is fun and the rewards are many. Contact the office for information on monthly meetings.
