A Special Message from Our CEO

In 2020 the Daughters of Penelope made their third donation of $10,000 to Meals on Wheels America. The donations made by the #daughtersofpenelope was made possible by the late Mr. Nicholas Economy.

Meals on Wheels America is the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity.

Below is a thank you video message from Meals on Wheels CEO & President Ellie Hollander. The DOP’s support of Meals on Wheels America dovetails with our DOP community service programs that assist our nation’s elderly who are vulnerable and are in need. For example, Meals on Wheels serves many residents of AHEPA’s and DOP’s 91 affordable elderly housing properties. #measonwheels #philanthropy #seniorservice

The Order of AHEPA turns 100 next year and the Daughters of Penelope turns 92 this month, and to celebrate, we are taking you back to the happiest place on earth, the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida! Pack up your families and bring plenty of sunscreen to join the AHEPA family in this once in a lifetime celebration!

Our 2020 Disney Convention was postponed due to the pandemic, so in 2022, we are going to make up for it and bring you a week full of fun that you will not want to miss out on! We have worked with Walt Disney World Resort to secure a special convention rate for our attendees of $179/night plus tax and we anticipate that these rooms are going to sell out quickly!

Meetings will start on Monday, July 18th, and Installations will conclude the convention on Friday, July 22nd, but we encourage you to take advantage of our rate and plan your family vacations around these dates. Our room rate is available at the Coronado Springs from July 13-26th!
