Montebello to donate fire truck to Nagorno Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian Revolutionary Federation “Dro” Chapter will be hosting their annual Banquet on Saturday, March 22, Asbarez reports.

Chairman of the ARF Dro Chapter, Levon Kirakosian, stated, “We would like to invite our community members to join the Dro Gomideh in celebrating the Montebello Armenian community and taking part in our upcoming initiative. We look forward to welcoming our supporters to the Montebello Armenian Center on March 22nd.”

Since 2005, the city of Montebello has established a sister city association with Stepanakert, the capital of Nagorno Karabakh. The city and its institutions have been committed to creating and strengthening a partnership between the communities. In recognizing their role as a sister city to Stepanakert, the Montebello Fire Department donated a fire truck, valued at $150,000, that is to be sent to Nagorno Karabakh. This generous donation is a testament to the commitment that the city of Montebello has invested into this municipal partnership and its efforts to encourage community development in Stepanakert.

Due to the size and nature of the gift, the transport of the fire truck to Stepanakert requires greater resources. The truck will need to be shipped to Poti, Georgia, on a cargo ship, from where it will be driven to Stepanakert by the city’s fire department. Thus, the Dro Gomideh (committee) will allocate the proceeds from this year’s banquet to the transport of this fire truck for the use of the community in Stepanakert.
