Atlanta Metropolis Organizes Aid in Baton Rouge


Listen as Fr. Chris speaks with Mrs. Dee Nicolaou, the Director of Disaster Response for the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta, and President of the Metropolis Philoptochos regarding the recent needs of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox community in Baton Rouge, LA.

The community in Baton Rouge has been recovering from deadly floods for a few weeks. Pieces of buildings, damaged personal items, and garbage have been piled along the roads. Skeletons of homes remain having been gutted to avoid mold.
