My experience with Arizona Russian Center was excellent! They helped me to move for free, and collected and brought the furniture for me and my child for free. I never saw such help from Russian organization before. Since then I went to their events. New Year party and Children's Protection Day party were very nice organized, happy for everyone and very, very friendly. Thanks everyone, who volunteers for ARC!

We have a good partnership with Arizona Russian Center for several months and will continue. They are very hospitable and supportive. They have a lot of events and activities for Russian Community. This center became a friendly home for many Russian speaking people. Many connections started in this Center. We are very appreciate them for help and support. We hope they will provide more services for healthy life and help people to live longer and happier.

This is a great organization. I'm not Russian and have only very limited Russian proficiency, yet I feel very welcome when I attend their events. Even though I didn't know anyone when I went for the first time, the folks were warm and I met some delightful people. I don't make it to all their events, but when I do, I thoroughly enjoy myself and feel like I'm part of their community even though I am just a newcomer. I think that anyone who wants to have more contact with another culture and language would enjoy the experience of coming to the ARC's parties.
I am also taking advantage of the Russian classes they offer. It's a long drive for me, yet worth it again because of the people and the sense of community. Russian's a difficult language to learn under the best of circumstances, so having a small class taught by a native speaker with other people who are also impassioned about learning the language is a plus.

The Arizona Russian Center has been very helpful. They arranged for a visit of an official from the Russian Consulate and I was able to submit my passport for renewal w/out having to fly to San Francisco. Thank you, guys! You are awesome!

I appreciate this opportunity to express my gratitude for your mission connecting Russian people and keeping such an outstanding legacy of our national roots as tenderness, heartfullness and desire to help!
Thanks to the Arizona Russian Center I found not only a cosy room for staying in Phoenix for my 3-week professional courses in July, but new wonderful friends! I can’t stop amazing how it happened in the smoothest and easiest way when I applied to this site, so that I was immediately connected with a family with which we had so much of common interests!
It must be emphasized how helpful all those advices concerning the use of transport, location of stores, rules of conduct may be for each of new arrivals in Phoenix!
It is hard to overestimate this generous support and this sense of community!
I wish you new ideas and new achievements, increasing the number of participants, like-minded assistants and sponsors of this undoubtedly important and necessary charity!

I went to the new years celebration event held by the Arizona Russian Center and it was incredible! They really took their time and effort setting it all up so that it would be enjoyable to everyone. There was a patio outside where it was quite if anyone wished to go out, they had a great DJ playing a mix of Russian songs, they even had an act with Father Frost and the Snow Maiden! I did not see a single person leaving the event without a smile. Everyone had a great time, including myself.

I have attended event with Vladimir Sorokin, who traveled around the world on the bicycle. It was very interesting event that combined interesting travel stories of Vladimir with New Year celebration. Vladimir also was the Grandfather Frost who came to wish as the happy New Year. The event was very warm and interesting. This type of events bring close people, and provide opportunity for meeting the new people with the similar background and interests. I am looking forward to more of this kind of events. Thank you.
