  • Feeding and clothing the needy is our largest budget item. More money is spent each year in preparing food and clothing to ship or to deliver first hand.
  • Food or funds for food are usually sent by mail or by container. Volunteers bring funds with them and purchase food locally.
  • On a weekly basis, clothing/shoes are collected, packed and mailed to the Balkan countries. Periodically, volunteers will take clothing with them and personally distribute them in different Balkan communities.

Food, Shelter, Clothing within Greece

This project covers only a portion of over one million refugees within Greece which is now a nation of 11 million people as the result of the Bosnian, Kosovo and Iraqi wars and the Albanian, Georgian and Russian civil wars. Recently, there is an influx of refugees from the Middle East, especially from Syria. Additionally, economic immigrants are being helped so that they can be rehabilitated in their new homeland.

  • In Thessaloniki, The Outreach helps support the Soup Kitchen for homeless and refugees, helps the new Roma church as well as many individuals for physical and medical needs.
  • In the Athens area, The Outreach works with different needy families and groups in caring especially for the homeless and refugees—providing food, clothing, Bibles and The Jesus Film in their own language.
