AHEPA District #10 does it again !

Thursday July 16, 2020

AHEPA District 10 delivered it's ninth truckload of milk to the Flint, MI community. AHEPANs led by Craig Theros, gave away food and water, along with the AHEPA donated 1944 gallons of milk, to the innocent victims of the "Flint Water Crisis". Through the eight giveaways, the AHEPA has now given away a total of 17,000 gallons of milk.

Flint residents who received the milk lined up for over 2 hours and they were very thankful for what they received. In total, 208 cars lined up, along with 36 walk-ups, representing 714 people served. The milk that remained, after the line subsided, went to the Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ of Flint and St. Luke Life Center of Flint. Nothing was wasted. There was coverage of the event by a local television station

Thank you to our generous Donors!

A big thank you to the volunteer team (Brothers & Sisters) 

that helped distribute the milk to the FLINT, Michigan people

Since its inception in 1922, the Order of AHEPA (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association ) has been a shining beacon for Hellenism. Along with its partner organizations, the Daughters of Penelope, Sons of Pericles (the junior order of AHEPA) and Maids of Athena (the junior order of the Daughters of Penelope), it has been a vehicle for promoting our culture, preserving our heritage and reaching back into our communities for the betterment of our fellow man.  


AHEPA District 10, also known as the Automotive District, spans the entire State of Michigan. Founded in the mid 1920s, Alpha # 40 was the pioneering Chapter. Since that time, District 10 has grown to 9 AHEPA Chapters, 8 DOP Chapters with a cumulative membership totaling over 1000 members. 

The Chapters within District 10 are active and passionate about our organization. In addition to supporting and promoting Hellenism, our District 10 Chapters regularly engage in philanthropic activities including 2 remarkably successful housing projects. 

Furthermore, there is a magnificent camaraderie in District 10 between the AHEPANs and the Daughters of Penelope. Perhaps the best example of synergy between the two organizations can be found in the District 10 Educational Foundation. Established in 1975 with a collaborative team of AHEPANs and Daughters, the Educational Foundation has provided deserving youth with the opportunity to pursue higher learning through scholarships. To date, over $600,000 have been awarded to 600 students.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting our District #10 convention!
