Hi all- I'm super sad to announce the news I just got. Apparently the Kristopher Woods apartment complex and Friends of Refugees do not have the correct permits to be running the after school program. After an inspection this week, the program is suspended until further notice, and I will announce as soon as it's back on. Until then, this weekly service trip is cancelled. Thanks to all the volunteers who have come out recently, and I appreciate y'all staying tuned for updates. Hopefully we'll get back to tutoring the Clarkston kids soon!

Margaret Stewart

Hi again Friends of Refugees Volunteers! Happy news: the after school program and our weekly service trip will be resuming in 2 weeks (April 12)! If you want to come, RSVP here for any of the remaining 4 weeks (April 12, 19, 26, and May 3). Thanks for your understanding with the unexpected cancellation these past couple weeks.
