Be a part of a worldwide celebration recognizing the impact that refugees bring to our communities!

This is an annual event organized by the Jewish Vocation Service in partnership with The Don Bosco Centers to celebrate World Refugee Day, and every day, by standing with our refugee and immigrant brothers and sisters in the KC area.
