I would like to share my happy friendly experience with AZ Russian Center. In 2005 I attended picnic in the public park, hosted by this organization, and from that time I'm trying to be at every event they have. Most of the time I'm sponsoring some activity or just giving donation for ARC, and they always providing charitable donation receipt for my TAX deduction. I like them for responsible and professional understanding of non-profit, charitable operations.

Thanks AZ Russian Center for very good and fast help to my family! They helped my parents to apply for free government medical insurance and fined a good doctor in Phoenix Arizona. I called ARC from Germany, where I was at the time, and asked to help my parents with health insurance issue due to their poor health. Week after my phone call, my mom and dad got insurance and were able to get their medicine. Several more days later my parents were assigned to the great doctor! Olga and Elena helped with translation for them, and actually drove them to the doctor. Thanks ARC!

I would like to thank Olga and everyone else at the Russian Center for all of their help. My son was in an accident at the begining of the year and i didnt know what to do and had so many questions. I meet with Olga and she was very helpful throughout the whole process. She helped us find a doctor, helped with the insurance company and helped us find a lawyer for my son to file disability. Every time i had a question or needed help Olga was a phone call away and she was glad to help every time. It was a terrible thing that happened to my family, but Olga's help made it least painful and easier to get through. I would recomend her and the Russian Center to anyone who needs to have great people in their corner. Thank you again for everything Olga.

Arizona Russian Center ( ARC) has had a dynamic and rapid development as an organization, and has overcome many growing pains and personalities along the way. It has been very interesting and rewarding to be a part of this organization's administration, and to see the progress the staff and volunteers had made over the years. There is definitely a public need that was not being met, prior to this organization's involvement in this sector.

I was a guest of AZ Russian Center at the several very different events. It was: International Women's Day, International Children's Protection Day, Picnic in the public park and New year party. Every time I came there was very friendly staff of this organization inviting me to enjoy the tasty food, interesting draws, conversation in Russian, plays and other surprisingly well organized and prepared things. Every time I was very satisfied. Thank you, ARC volunteers!

Me and my mom went to this event and it was awesome. I remember there was this magian and he did these awesome magic tricks. I liked the food there the sanwiches were amazing. I also liked that there was this little play that the kids did and then they got prizes. The music that they put on was good to. My experice was good and i thought they sould do more stuff like that again.

я была приглашена на встречи организованые Русским Центром Аризоны.Мне эти встречи запомнились очень дружелюбной атмосферой, професиональной постановкой праздничных выступлений особенно детского коллектива. Также очень интересными были выступления приглашенных актеров(номер с голубями,арабский танец).

I have attended the picnic that was organized by the ARC. It was a great opportunity for me to meet Russian speaking people, practice my Russian, and eat great authentic Russian food! I am looking forward to more similar events. Thank you!
