We would like to thank everyone who came out to Broadway Christian Church on Saturday to celebrate World Refugee Day with us and our refugee community! Your support is so important to us in honoring the strength, courage and determination of refugees and in welcoming them into our community. We had approximately 200 people show up for games, crafts, music and a potluck featuring dishes from around the world (plus some generous donations from some local restaurants).

KOMU, the Missourian and the Columbia Tribune all covered the event. Check out their stories, and head over to our Facebook page to look at behind-the-scenes photos of our hardworking volunteers and to see some photos from the celebration itself.

A huge thanks to everyone who made this day possible! We hope to see you all next year!
