Girl Scouts Welcome Refugees

St. John 3rd grade girls recently helped welcome 127 newly arrived refugee families to our community at the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Winter Welcome Festival. In addition, they personally sponsored a refugee family from Ukraine who arrived at the end of October with their three young children.

Event photos were taken by fellow 3rd grade parent, Alessandra Brescia. You will see photos of our girls leading activities, welcoming children, and photos of the troop with our Ukrainian family on our Facebook page.
