Syrian Sweets Exchange 8.0

February 19 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

We are so excited to have our local Changing Hands Bookstore host Syrian Sweets Exchange at both Tempe and Phoenix locations on President’s Day to celebrate how America embraces immigrants and refugees, compassion, love, understanding and learning from each other. As Syrian refugees work to make America their new home, Syrian Sweets Exchange and other local partners are helping equip and empower them for long-term success. Come enjoy sweets, Turkish coffee and craft items made by these amazing bakers and artisans! There will also be activities for children. This will be a great opportunity to foster positive cross-cultural interactions and build understanding and friendship with Syrian members of our community. All proceeds go directly to these families. Please bring cash for easy transactions.
