Paradise Valley United Methodist Church (PVUMC) is delighted to host the Syrian Sweets Exchange 5.0 on Sunday, October 1, 10:30 am-12:30 pm in the Fellowship Center. Syrian Sweets Exchange Phoenix invites local Syrian bakers to sell scrumptious homemade Syrian sweets and Turkish coffee at this event. Other Syrian refugees will be showcasing handcrafted items, which will also be available for purchase, and there will be face painters, henna designers, and balloon sculptures. Cash donations (and smaller bills) preferred. All proceeds go directly to the bakers to help them support their families. The ultimate goal is for these refugees to find employment in the baking industry or open home bakery or other small businesses. Show support and solidarity with Syrian members of our community. Help foster positive cross-cultural interactions and build understanding and friendship through home-baked sweets.
