Glendale Association of REALTORS® Major Donation to Armenia Fund
While civilians are under threat in Nagorno-Karabagh, GAOR donates $120,000 for immediate humanitarian aid
GLENDALE, Calif. – October 28, 2020
In light of the ongoing hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan and the devastating impacts on unarmed civilians and non-combatants in the region, the Glendale Association of REALTORS® (GAOR) has recognized the need for immediate assistance and has pledged a significant donation for humanitarian aid.
To provide assistance to civilians in this difficult time, GAOR has pledged a donation of $120,000 to the Armenia Fund, a non-profit and non-sectarian organization whose mission is to help the people of Armenia and Karabagh through humanitarian and infrastructure development. GAOR urges members of our community to assist where they can in helping with humanitarian assistance for affected civilians including donations of clothing, food, medicines, and housing.
“Our twofold mission is to support real estate professionals and at the same time to uphold the communities we serve as REALTORS®,” said Steven Small, president of the Glendale Association of REALTORS®. “Nearly half of our association’s members are of Armenian heritage, while Glendale and surrounding communities are home to a large Armenian population. We are proud to support our Armenian friends and neighbors in this time of need and we celebrate the Armenian community’s accomplishments and achievements as thriving members of our region and our country.”
The Glendale Association of REALTORS® is a trade organization established on July 22, 1920, to serve its membership by providing programs and services to enhance their ability to conduct business successfully with integrity and competency, without undue regulatory restraint, as well as to encourage the preservation of real property rights.
