Armenian Relief Society

Ten days ago, the ARS of Western USA, Regional Executive Board released a heartfelt call to action to its members and the community at large to extend a helping hand to Lebanese Armenians affected by the devastating explosion on August 4, 2020.

The ARS Regional Executive Board would like to extend its sincere appreciation and deepest gratitude to ARS chapters, members, and individual donors, who joined in our call to action and made generous donations to benefit the Emergency Appeal for Lebanon. As such, the region’s total contributions to this cause increased to over $125,000, which will be sent to the Armenian Relief Cross of Lebanon through the ARS Central Executive.

Donations continue to be collected and can be made online  by marking Lebanon Disaster Aid. Checks payable to ARS can be mailed to the ARS Regional Headquarters, located at 517 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale, CA 91202. Tel. (818) 500-1343.
