Each year The Philoptochos donates 20% of the proceeds to various charities. In the past couple of years we have donated to HomeFirst of Union County (aid to the homeless), The Hellenic Relief Fund (providing relief to families affected by the financial crisis in Greece) and this year we are happy to announce that our Board has unanimously voted to have the Cyprus Children’s Fund as the recipient charity.
The CCF was formed 40 years ago following the Turkish invasion of 1974 to help refugee children. The role has now expanded to helping children affected by the financial crisis. Today they help 450 children with a one-on-one sponsorship. Aside from sponsorship they also award yearly scholarships to Greek American, Greek (mainland Greece) and Cypriot students ranging from 40 to 60 thousand dollars a year.
