About our Philoptochos
The Saints Peter & Paul Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. is the philanthropic arm of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America that has offered eighty years of helping those in need and supporting organizations and programs that do the same. Philoptochos makes a difference in the lives of people in greater Chicago, the United States, and throughout the world. Our local parish chapter has been working since the founding of our community in the early 1960s. Our women engage in a multitude of fundraising and educational programs to accomplish the Philoptochos mission to “help the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, those with disabilities, and the victims of disasters through its National and Metropolis Boards and its 485 Chapters and 27,500 members nationwide.”
