In 2019, our chapter was given a challenge by the National Philoptochos Society to choose a project that reflected the work of Philoptochos. We partnered with “LUV MICHAEL”, a non-profit organization, whose goal is to provide meaningful employment and on the job training to those diagnosed with autism. We named our project “AUTISM HAS OUR LUV”. Through various fundraising efforts, supported by our youth organizations, schools, friends, and our entire community, the Philoptochos raised $51,000. Of that amount, $13,500 was raised by the youth of our parish. On Sunday, November 1st, 2020, together with our youth, we presented the total funds raised to Dr. Lisa Liberatore and Dr. Dimitri Kessaris, founders of Luv Michael.
