DT2 April After Hours – Resalat and Feasting Fox
April 19 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
See you at April After Hours!
Wednesday, April 19
5:30 to 6:30pm — Resalat Community Center
6:30 to 8:30pm — Feasting Fox
Did you know that there is an organization right here in Dutchtown that teams up regularly with the International Institute to help welcome refugees in the St. Louis area? After completing major renovations on the building located at 3418 Meramec St., Resalat Community Center opened as a safe and welcoming space for immigrants from Afghanistan — gathering people together for regular prayer services, social events and volunteer work.
Our neighbors at Resalat Community Center work side by side with the International Institute to help refugees from Afghanistan settle into their new city. Members of the community center pool their resources to help provide refugees with essentials such as furniture, clothing and food as well as help provide translation and transportation services as these newcomers try to find their footing in St. Louis.
