All Saints Belmore introduces Side by Side: Our Community Standing With Yours Initiative

·

The Greek community of Belmore, together with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia announced their participation in the ‘Side by Side: Our Community Standing with Yours Initiative, on Tuesday January 14th.

State Representative Tony Burke and local MPs Sophie Cotsis and Jihad Dib announced the initiative, which aims to promote and strengthen community actions in relieving residents of disaster-stricken areas. Particularly as a response to the bushfire tragedy that has affected thousands of Australian communities.

At the meeting, the Parish Priest of All Saints Church in Belmore, Very Rev. Archimandrite Apostolos Trifyllis, announced that the church had raised $8,500 on December 22nd to buy food for struggling farmers during the bushfire tragedy.

The food fundraiser filled a container, which was shipped last week, by a vehicle donated by Mr. Panagiotis Synadinos to Jervis Bay, with a distribution centre on the Parish-Community of St John.

Last Sunday, January 12th, ‘tiropites’ were sold to buy energy drinks for firefighters.

The next fundraiser in line with the initiative will take place on January 24th, which will focus on collecting household items for bushfire victims.

The next fundraiser after that will be fundraising for schools affected by the bushfires.
