GLENADALE–The Armenian Relief Society Western Regional Executive announced that it had received a $60,200 grant from the City of Glendale for the installation of a security system in the organization’s new center facility–the grand opening for which is scheduled for Sunday.
The installation of a state-of-the-art security system is deemed important by ARS officials–who said that the introduction of the organization’s newest social service facility–the psychological outreach program–aimed at assisting substance abuse victims–may potentially lead to damages to the staff and visitors of the building.
Furthermore–to prevent past incidents of robbery and breaking and entering at the old Nazikian building from recurring at the new facility–a security system should be in place. In recent years–the ARS center has been violated–during which the facility was damaged and numerous files were stolen.
The aforementioned grant will allow the ARS center to protect itself against damages and undesirable incidents–which–in the long run–could affect the every-day operations of the ARS.
The Western Regional Executive of the ARS also thanked the Glendale City Council for the grant and its prudent outlook in ensuring the continuation of the organization’s activities.
