AFSS Press Office
Published January 8, 2016
On Friday January 8th, 2016, Mr. Adrian Feudale, President of Alltech Solutions was welcomed to Holy Trinity Armenian Church by the Parish Priest, Fr. Zareh Zargarian and the board members of Armenian Family Support Services.
During a warm and friendly meeting, Mr. Feudale, a generous, young entrepreneur who believes in giving back to the community, donated 15 brand new laptops for the newcomer, refugee families.
Fr. Zargarian and the AFSS Board Members talked about the details of the vast and important mission they have undertaken in regards to assisting Syrian and Iraqi refugees and the newcomers in general.
Mr. Adrian Feudale’s donation is greatly appreciated and most certainly this act of kindness will be a great assistance to the families in the resettlement mission.
Members of the Armenian Family Support Services, Student Volunteers, and Newcomers joined together to help clean up the surrounding grounds of our community and church. Over 12 bags were collected and picked up by the City of Toronto.
This event takes place every year in the month of April to commemorate the Armenian Genocide of April 1915.
2014 marked the 8th year that the Armenian Family Support Services organized the Christmas Campaign for Children (formerly known as Adopt a Child for Christmas campaign), which helps support deserving families and children in the GTA to celebrate the holiday season. Through donations from the community, we were able to produce gift packages consisting of toys, clothing, chocolates, gift cards, and goodie bags including health and food products which were packaged and then personally delivered by our volunteers.
On Saturday December 20th, 2014, AFSS received a large number of toys gathered by St. Sahag and St. Mesrob Armenian Saturday School for the needy families and children on our list. On Sunday December 21st, 2014, our amazing team came together and began preparing gift bags for deserving families and children. These bags were prepared with a lot of love and Christmas spirit, and each gift bag was personalized to the child it was for.
We are immensely grateful to all our supporters, donors and all of the volunteers. We would like to give a big thank you to St. Sahag and St. Mesrop Armenian Saturday School for their Toy Drive in support of the children. Also, special recognition to Mrs. Seza Nazarian for leading this compassionate mission year after year. We are so grateful to all the people who have supported the children by donating a toy or making a financial contribution. You all have shown the true spirit of Christmas by giving to those in need.
