Winterhaven Lights Walk with Refugees--this Friday

All are welcome to join the Winterhaven Lights Walk on Friday December 18th at 6:00pm.

Lutheran Social Services has organized an evening walk through Winterhaven, the Tucson neighborhood notorious for its spectacular holiday decorations. This is an event bringing together Tucsonans, refugee families, volunteers and refugee resettlement staff for a little holiday sightseeing.

If you can volunteer to transport refugees to this event, contact us at (520)440-0100. Otherwise, meet at gas station on northwest corner of Country Club and Ft. Lowell at 6:00pm.

We hope to see you there!

EMM (Episcopal Migration Ministries) will be visiting from NYC with a film crew as they are filming a small documentary about refugee resettlement in the US so you may be caught on film if you attend. The footage will be used for web modules that encourage activities ‘beyond the basics’ to resettlement agencies and to encourage involvement from sponsors and faith based organizations.
