YP Montréal Donates $2,000 to AGBU Alex Manoogian School in Support of Syrian-Armenian Students
On January 29, 2015, the AGBU Young Professionals of Montréal (YP Montréal) hosted a Hockey Night raising $2,000 (CAD) for Syrian-Armenian children attending the special welcoming classes currently offered by the AGBU Alex Manoogian School.
YP Montréal Chairman Jean Akkoyan and Steering Committee Members Olga Markarian and Sandra Afeyan recently visited the Alex Manoogian School to hand deliver the donation. Accompanied by Principal Chahe Tanachian, they visited the welcoming classes and became more acquainted with the work the school is accomplishing in integrating the students.
With many Syrian-Armenians fleeing their homes due to the ongoing civil war in search of a safer future, the school initiative was implemented in response to the efforts needed to support the scheduled arrival of 700 families to Montréal.
