GLENDALE—In an effort to help Haiti, which is in desperate need of aid, the administration, parents, students and supporters of Vahan and Anoush Chamlian Armenian School are undertaking fundraising efforts for Haiti.
“This tragedy especially resonates with Armenians who remember the devastating Spitak earthquake in Armenia in 1988”, said Principal Vazken Madenlian. “We were so thankful for the help Armenia received to start the process of rebuilding.”
The administration has placed collection boxes in classrooms, educated the students about the tragedy in Haiti, and encouraged them to make donations. More than just helping those in dire need, this collection effort will provide a valuable lesson to students about the importance of charity. All donations will be presented to an aid organization working directly with the victims in Haiti.
Individuals wishing to donate can do so by sending or delivering a check to the school office at 4444 Lowell Ave., Glendale, CA 91214. Please make the checks payable to Chamlian Armenian School.
