Evrytanian Association Velouchi, Chapter 18- Agios Taxiarhis

Velouchi is a philanthropic organization founded in 1944 in Charlotte, NC, where the base of the organization is with a concentrated purpose to assist the particular homeland Evrytania region in Central Greece and Greece in general (www.velouchiusa.org).  The Association’s goals were to assist with medicine and clothing immediately after WWII and the Civil War in Greece, and were later broadened to include heritage preservation, philanthropy, educational and cultural support.  Velouchi is comprised of 18 chapters throughout the United States and is striving to expand; it welcomes members at large whose heritage is from Evrytania, as well as friends of the Association with the same goals.
