Executive Committee Approves $100,000 For Hurricane Response Fund

IOCC delivers aid.

The Leadership 100 Executive Committee on September 5, 2017 unanimously approved emergency assistance to International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) for the Emergency Response Fund for Hurricanes with a grant of $100,000, in response to an appeal from His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Geron of America, which initially addressed Hurricane Harvey, but was extended to include Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“Our Executive Committee responded immediately to the appeal of Archbishop Demetrios because Leadership 100 has always been there to aid in time of crisis at home and abroad,” said Chairman George Tsandikos. “Whether for earthquake and fire victims in Greece or in the aftermath of September 11 and Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, Leadership 100 has always had high confidence in the ability of IOCC.”

IOCC, an agency under the auspices of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, has been in the regions of Texas, Florida and the Caribbean since access was possible for providing care, and will continue to be there for weeks and months to come.
