Pilgrims here is an opportunity to do meaningful work while having fun!

“Building Bridges One Meal At A Time”

LexRAP has been spearheading an effort to provide a monthly lunch at the International Institute of New England (IINE). The goal is to provide a healthy meal, give refugees an opportunity to practice their English while connecting with one another.

People are needed to prepare food at a home in Lexington and/or to attend the lunch in Lowell on the following Tuesdays in 2019: Jan. 15th, Feb. 26th, Apr. 23rd, and June 11th. (The months of March and May are being completely covered by another group.) You can also bake a dessert like brownies and deliver them to the home of the organizer of this effort, Barbara Freedman. For more information please email Sandra Gardiner at Sandra.gardiner.02420@gmail.com . You may also contact Barbara Freedman directly at Barbara.a.freedman@gmail.com.
