December Volunteer Highlight
The Albuquerque Metropolitan Committee

We want every Orthodox home in America to know about the important work of IOCC. That is why IOCC developed Metropolitan Committees, groups of volunteers who play a vital role in supporting the humanitarian mission of IOCC through fundraising special events and awareness-building efforts. Currently, IOCC has 36 Metropolitan Committees across the United States, including Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Albuquerque Metropolitan Committee is one of IOCC's newest committees, organized only a few months prior to planning their first fundraising event for IOCC. On November 14, 2009, the IOCC Albuquerque Metropolitan Committee held its first annual dinner at St. George Greek Orthodox Church. The Albuquerque community gathered for a pan Orthodox Vespers service, followed by dinner, entertainment, and a presentation by keynote speaker and Chairman of the Board, Mr. Alex Machaskee. The dedicated volunteers of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Committee gathered 200 people to raise almost $15,000 for the work of IOCC! Hats off to the Albuquerque Committee for a successful first event!
