JFS hosts Welcoming Week in Collaboration with UM Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Campus Farm
Welcoming America, a national nonprofit organization, leads a Welcoming Network to promote inclusion and community across the country.
Welcoming America encourages communities to recognize Welcoming Week as an opportunity to bring together established and new neighbors. This year, Welcoming Week will fall September 9-18 with the theme, “Where We Belong.”Welcoming America encourages communities to consider what makes spaces places of inclusion and belonging and to celebrate the contributions of all community members with a commitment to values of welcoming and belonging.
As part of Welcoming Week, JFS invites the community to join us for an Open House to see the space we’ve sown as a place #WhereWeBelong. On September 9th join us from 9-11 am to view the garden and visual displays of our work. You may also contribute toward the program by making a donation to Jewish Family Services and specify Refugee Garden as the purpose of the donation.
