Pasadena, CA – This past November the AYF Pasadena “Nigol Touman” Chapter organized a family kebab night at the Pasadena Armenian Center, to benefit the Armenian community in Syria. The event attracted members of the community as well as AYF members from across Southern California.
Our Syrian Armenian brothers and sisters need all the support that the Armenian community can assist them with. Knowing that our immediate assistance is needed, the AYF could not just idly stand aside without trying to lend a helping hand. Pasadena Chairperson, Cynthia Keyllian moved the guests with her words saying, “This events purpose is to provide monetary support as well as showing the community that the Syrian Armenians are not standing alone in their time of need.” With the support of the community the Pasadena Nigol Touman Chapter was able to raise $1,000 for the Syrian Armenian Relief fund.
With the holiday season fast approaching us, we worry about what presents well be getting our loved ones, decorating our tree, and all the other joys that come along with Christmas and the new year. Our Syrian Armenian brothers and sisters unfortunately don’t have the luxury of enjoying the holidays; they are worried about supporting and protecting their families. We encourage everyone to donate to the Syrian Armenian Relief Fund, so they are able to continuously support the Syrian Armenians in need.
Founded in 1933, the Armenian Youth Federation is the largest and most influential Armenian American youth organization in the United States, working to advance the social, political, educational and cultural awareness of Armenian-American youth.
