GLENDALE – While the Armenian Relief Society of Western USA, Regional Executive extends its gratitude to the community for immediately responding to its Call to Action regarding Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the ARS has since learned that more than 20 Armenian families in the Houston area have been subjected to irrevocable damages, many of whom have lost their homes and are enduring severe difficulties following the aftermath of this natural disaster in Texas.
The ARS Houston “Shogher” Chapter has propelled into action, making every effort to offer assistance to these Armenian families, who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and now find themselves in troubling circumstances upon being displaced from their homes as a result of the flooding.
The ARS Regional Executive’s fundraising campaign for relief efforts continues and ARS chapters throughout the western region have committed their support.
“Funds raised from this campaign will entirely be allocated to the Armenian families in Houston, who are now homeless as a result of Hurricane Harvey and are in immediate need of financial assistance. Once again, we appeal to our community to continue its support of this campaign and make a tax-deductible donation, in any amount, to the ARS for this purpose. Donations will have an impactful role in helping to restore the lives of these families,” explained Silva Poladian, ARS Regional Executive Chairperson.
Donations can be made online via www.arswestusa.org or by way of checks made payable to the ARS and mailed to the ARS Regional Headquarters, 517 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale, CA 91202.
