Dear Friends ,
In honor of U.S. humanitarian assistance efforts for survivors of the Armenian Genocide from 1915-1923, the ANCA has initiated the “Cans for the Cause” Campaign, which encourages community members to assist food banks dedicated to feeding the hungry.
The effort is part of President-Elect Barack Obama’s challenge to Americans to participate in National Day of Service activities with a nation-wide campaign to feed the hungry. The Day of Service is set to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Day (January 19) and the Presidential Inauguration (January 20th).
