Meet The Team

Maria Anna Koukoularis


Many years ago Founder/President Maria Koukoularis wanted to do something for children living in the homeless shelters in New Jersey. Easter, the day celebrated to remember the resurrection of Jesus seemed to be the perfect day to instill hope in these little ones. This initiative that was started in 1999 and grew over the past years and together with Executive Board Members Allyson Galinis and Eleni Koukoularis they expanded past Easter's 5000 baskets with many initiatives including and not limited to Scholarships, Jr. Board, Warm those in Need, Feed those in Need, Christmas, and so many more.
