Metropolitan & Philoptochos Women at Pine Street Inn
Metropolitan Methodios and Metropolis Philoptochos Board Members visited the Pine Street Inn in Boston on Wednesday, May 5 to feed the guests. A long standing project of the Philoptochos Board, it includes the cooking of the meals at the Hellenic College-Holy Cross cafeteria and serving the Pine Street Inn guests at dinner time. On May 5, Metropolitan Methodios, Georgia Lagadinos, a steward at the St. John in Boston, and Diane Stamatopoulos, a steward at St. George in Lynn, served meatloaf and all the trimmings.
Pine Street Inn began its journey four decades ago, offering approximately 200 men suffering from alcoholism a safe alternative to the streets of Boston. Since then, it has expanded to serve over 1,300 men and women each day, providing a comprehensive range of programs and services, including housing, outreach, shelter and job training.
The Pine Street Inn, the Philoptochos Women and the philanthropic ministry of the Metropolis of Boston share the goals of fostering a community of respect and hope for those in need.
