To celebrate Glendi, St. Andrew’s Women’s Philoptochos Society created inspirational signs celebrating stewardship to display on Lakeshore Drive and Sheridan Road for Holy Week. The three inspirational “LOVE” art signs were hung at St. Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Church during Holy Week, and are still on display inside the church, on Lake Shore Drive, and on Sheridan Road. Donations supported Philoptochos’ mission to help those in need, such as the St. Andrew Food Pantry, St. Iakovos Retreat Center, Greek American Care and Rehabilitation Centre, Philoxenia Charities, Hellenic Foundation, St. Basil Academy, International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), St. Photios Shrine, meals for the elderly at our Parish, and many more. The public art project designed by Miss Alex White raised almost $7,000 during COVID-19.
