Meet Joe Chelebian! Joe is 16 and lives in the Los Angeles area. To help his fellow Armenians, Joe decided to launch a charity drive to raise funds and dental hygiene products from his community at St. James Armenian Church in Los Angeles. This effort will be benefiting the Mobile Dental Clinic and the Apelian Dental Clinic at the Prkutyun Center in Armenia, both projects of The Paros Foundation.
Joe’s effort successfully raised $3,974. Beyond these funds, which will be used to support dental screenings for almost 625 children, 2,500 toothbrushes were donated, 1,200 tubes of toothpaste were collected and almost one mile of dental floss!
Thank you Joe and the St. James Armenian Church family for your support of this important effort!
