WHAV’s Community Spotlight is turning its microphones to those civic and charitable organizations that make Greater Haverhill a wonderful place to live.

The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association’s Acropolis Chapter 39 in Haverhill is part of the largest Greek-American association in the world. The AHEPA organization has chapters United States, Canada, Greece and Cyprus and sister chapters in Australia and New Zealand.

It was established in 1922 to protect Hellenes from prejudice and to fight discrimination while promoting Greek ideals of education, civic responsibility, family and individual excellence through community service and volunteering.

In Haverhill, the civic organization presents the annual Man of the Year Award, provides college scholarships, distributes Christmas baskets for the elderly and shut ins and undertakes an annual Greek American Golf Tournament for charity.
