Volunteers Needed for Immigrant Services Day
Friday, January 20, at McCaw Hall, Seattle Center, the City of Seattle provides free legal services, referrals and trainings for immigrant families in a single, convenient location (321 Mercer Street, Seattle). Free training available for those who wish to be immigrant and refugee allies. They particularly need attorneys, of any background, interpreters and general event volunteers. Mayor Ed Murray says, “It is my commitment that Seattle will remain a welcoming city, not a place where children and their families live in fear…Seattle aims to ensure the event is a welcoming space for all immigrants, regardless of their status.” For more information, call 206. 386.9090 or visit seattle.gov/iandraffairs. Free parking at the Mercer Street garage.
Volunteer Cooks Needed
Plymouth 9 am worshipers recently learned about the “Refugee & Immigrant Children’s Program,” sponsored by Lutheran Community Services. Several Plymouth folks expressed interest in providing two or three meal nights for Monthly Foster Family Support Groups. Groups constitute 15-20 immigrant or refugee teens and their foster parents. They meet monthly for a shared meal followed by workshops. If you would like to consider joining other Plymouth folk on this project, please call or email Adele Reynolds, 206.621.4867.Subscribe
