The Armenia Fund’s International Thanksgiving Day Telethon will take place tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, November 26, under the general theme of "Our Home” (Mer Douneh). Having become a Thanksgiving Day tradition for Armenians around the world, the Telethon will air from Los Angeles and be broadcast from coast to coast and internationally.
This year's goal is the construction of furnished single-family homes for families in Artsakh with five children or more who lack adequate housing. There are already 466 families identified in Artsakh who fit the criteria and 211 are known to live in unacceptable housing conditions.
The homes that Armenia Fund constructs for these families will have land plots of 10,000 sq. ft. each, where the families can grow fruits and vegetables. Armenia Fund will provide furniture for every room in the house as well as provide household appliances, including water heaters, refrigerators, washers, stoves and vacuum cleaners. Priority will be given to low-income families, families of veterans of the Artsakh Liberation War, as well as to the survivors of soldiers who died defending Artsakh.
This Sunday (as last Sunday) there will be a second plate collection to benefit the telethon in all Prelacy parishes. Please give as generously as possible.
