Syrian Sweets Exchange Phoenix 4.0

August 26, 2017, 9:00am - August 26, 2017, 1:00pm

Hi. We are back!!! Did you miss our sweets over the summer?! Not only that, SSE is back on a Saturday, as requested by those who couldn’t make it to previous events due to attending their own church on Sundays. After Tempe, Ahwatukee and Scottsdale, we are bringing SSE to Mesa where resides a major hub of supporters of refugees including Central Christian Church. Here is the invite from CCC: Join us for a Taste of Syria on August 26th from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at our Mesa Campus. As Syrian refugees work to make America their new home, Central and other local partners are helping equip and empower them for long-term success. Come enjoy sweets and craft items made by these amazing bakers and artisans! There will also be face painting, balloon twisting, henna tattoos and other activities for children. This will be a great opportunity to foster positive cross-cultural interactions and build understanding and friendship with Syrian members of our community. All proceeds go directly to these families. Please bring cash for transactions. See you there! *** The bake sale and bazaar will be held inside the New Life Center building. Sweets come in assorted $5 boxes and $2 bags. You will be paying the bakers directly in their hands. Bakers have donation jars and accept donations. If you need change or cash, we have 3 “ATM” stations, where you can use your credit cards to get cash with a 3% Paypal fee. There will be SSE information table where you can get more information on how to help a refugee: - We are seeking Sponsors who will be mentoring refugee families to help them navigate the way in their new home. - We are looking for "reading pals" who will come weekly to their apartment and help the children read. - We have Supper Club where you can host a dinner freshly cooked by refugees in your own house - a great way to introduce your family and friends to the taste of Syria while helping refugees and fostering a rewarding cross-cultural experience. Come on out to share sweets, share cultures and share love. Please share our event and invite your family and friends. Visit us at www.SyrianSweetsAZ.com
