Student members of the Melbourne University’s Greek Association (MUnGA) have donated one thousand dollars to Fronditha Care through their fundraising efforts.
The donation was made on Monday 20 April when MUnGA’s former president Christian Raspa, along with the current cultural affiliations officer Jordan Moschovitis, met with Fronditha president Mike Zafiropoulos AM JP.
Mr Zafiropoulos expressed his gratitude to the two students, along with the other members of the association, stating “all of us here at Fronditha are very pleased that the younger generation are showing their empathy once again, to an organisation that aims to improve the quality of life of older people in our community,” he said.
“It’s very significant that these young people, while putting in the effort to succeed in their studies, can find the time to get involved and help organisations of the community.”
Mr Moschovitis responded to the message of thanks, saying “I feel both happy and proud at the same time, that we have the opportunity to offer a little joy to our people, to our grandfathers and our grandmothers.”
Last week MUnGA also elected its new committee for 2015/2016, the successful candidates were: president Nick Tzoutzidis, vice-president Tia Kallianis, treasurer John Liacopoulos, secretary Pamela Papadopoulos, cultural and affiliations officer Jordan Moshcovitis, media officer Anna Vass, NUGAS representative Eleni Angeletos, along with general committee members: John Papaemmanouil, Stephen Liondas, Stylianos Nikias, Perry Athanasopoulos, Yiorgios Yiappos, Alexandros Yiappos, Ioanna Yiappos and Arthur Gioulekas.
