Welcoming Neighbors Old and New: Houston to Mark World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 17

Volunteer opportunities available with Freewheels Houston and Houston Refugee Consortium

For several years, Houston has welcomed more refugees than any other city in the United States, with thousands of men, women and children from all over the world resettling in the greater Houston area, rebuilding their lives and contributing to the community in many ways.

For that reason, we honor and celebrate their strength and perseverance on World Refugee Day, which will be celebrated on Saturday, June 17, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Levy Park, 3801 Eastside—in the Upper Kirby District, south of Richmond between Kirby and Buffalo Speedway. Continue reading
