The pre-orders went really well; we received 11 pre-orders. To order more sweets: Please email us at Order@SyrianSweetsAZ.com to place your order. The sweets flyer and order form are attached. To enjoy delicious Syrian food with a cause: There is a Syrian Supper on Sunday Dec 3 in Mesa that benefits a family in need of rent due to her husband's sickness. This is another way to enjoy delicious food with a cause. Facebook link: www.facebook.com/events/143834289572674/ Sign up at: www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0b49a4ad23a02-azsyrian3 To invite refugee-supportive groups to host Syrian Sweets Exchange: Please use "Invite to Host SSE" and "SSE" flyers attached. We are looking for hosts in Central Phoenix and West Valley where many refugees live. SSE is a great way for us to reach volunteers to assist refugee families. We continued to be awed by UMC's support of refugees and are very grateful for all you do to help us. Many thanks to De De Rudolphy, Darlene, Kimberly Bartman and Sally Bixlen Lloyd. You all are so awesome!
