PICO RIVERA, Calif.—The holidays are a time for compassion. Before the Christmas break started, Mesrobian High School and Middle School “Interact Club” members helped wrap toy presents for underprivileged youth in Pico Rivera. About 50 families who couldn’t afford to buy gifts for their children had these gifts presented to them at a special Santa Party.
“In addition to supporting Armenia and Artsakh, we want students to serve their local communities as well,” stated the school. “Armenian Mesrobian School is keeping those less fortunate than us in our hearts and minds this Christmas and throughout the holidays.”
Interact Club at Mesrobian is an organization that not only helps the local community, but is also a way to help people internationally. Interact clubs are responsible for completing at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. As one of the programs of Rotary International, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon with almost 200,000 young people involved.
