Elpida, the Greek word for Hope, is a vibrant ministry dedicated to building community through faith. Elpida serves hundreds of children across Northern California by bringing them together through a modern, engaging approach to Greek Orthodox education and faith-centered activities, emphasizing giving back to our community.

At Elpida, each of our gatherings includes a service component where participants engage in projects that make a tangible difference. In the past, we have created blessing bags for the homeless, made stuffed animals to serve as trauma toys for the South San Francisco Police Department, and crafted blankets for young patients at UCSF Hospital.

Our next retreat, scheduled for August 24, 2024, focuses on supporting underprivileged children in the Mission District of San Francisco by providing them with high-quality backpacks filled with school supplies. Our goal is to raise $3,500 so the Elpida participants can prepare at least 100 backpacks filled with essential items such as notebooks, crayons, markers, folders, and other school supplies. We are seeking monetary donations to make this happen. Can we rely on you to help us meet our goal? Your generous support would bring joy and essential resources to children in need. Thank you for your consideration.

Help us provide books to under-resourced communities where book ownership is either low or just doesn't exist. We all know that literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and ultimately, kids' futures.

45 million Americans are functionally illiterate and 50% of adults cannot read a book above an 8th grade level. Help us change these shocking statistics by boosting literacy skills among children living in economically disadvantaged circumstances who do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers.

Thank you for helping kids in need learn and thrive in school and in life!
