|World Refugee Day celebration is June 23|
In recognition of the worldwide event declared by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the Global Friends Coalition will be hosting a celebration on Tuesday, June 23. This event will be held both inside and outside Zion United Methodist Church from 7 to 9 p.m. The program will begin at 7:30.
Attendees can learn more about the refugee experience, the refugees living in our community, and volunteer opportunities through cultural displays and performances. Refreshments and children's activities will also be provided. The event is free, but attendees can bring a donation of a new or gently used household item (something to set up an apartment for a refugee family).
