GRACE volunteers, donors and supporters are invited to meet our two refugee families at a potluck welcome party on December 10th. Both families have met many members of our settlement team but this will give them a chance to meet the larger community of generous and compassionate people who have made it possible for them to make a new start in Canada.
Please join us in welcoming the Sarhan/Shawish family from Syria: Fadi, Mariam, Foad, Toulin and Celein who arrived in April 2016 and were "adopted" by GRACE in September. We are also very happy to welcome the Al-Hilali/Majeed family from Iraq: Shifaa and her sons Saif, Hameed and Omer who arrived on October 3, 2016.
This event is free (of course!) but we ask you to register through Eventbrite so that we know you are coming and we can plan ahead. This is a potluck party so please consider bringing something from your kitchen to share with others.
If you plan to bring food or drink (non-alcoholic only please!) please email Allison Murray to let her know what you are bringing.
If you would prefer to contribute to the cost of the room rental, decorations and table settings please use the handy donation button which will magically appear when you register.
If you would like to contribute to the cost but want a tax receipt, please go to the donation page on the GRACE website.
