AYF Launches Second Annual Clothing Drive

AYF clothing drive

GLENDALE—In the spirit of the holidays, the Armenian Youth Federation Glendale “Roupen” Chapter and the San Fernando Valley “Sardarabad” Chapter are reaching out to the community for help with their Annual Clothing Drive.

Last year, an unprecedented 5000 pounds of clothing was sent to Armenia, Artsakh and Javakh through the non-profit organization, Paros Lighthouse, who graciously shipped and distributed the clothing at no cost.

This year we are hoping to set a new record and need your help in doing so. Please donate new or lightly used clothing to Armenian Youth Federation’s Clothing Drive. Your donation will ensure children and adults in Armenia stay warm during the winter this year, and for seasons to come.

Please drop off all clothing items at the following locations by January 10th. Further locations will be announced in the coming days.
