Lutheran Services of Georgia invites you to join us for a special Volunteer Appreciation Night on Tuesday, November 1, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. (with exhibit open prior to the event from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for those coming straight from work). The event will feature free admission to the national exhibit, "Torn From Home: My Life As a Refugee," on tour in Atlanta at the Breman Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum, which provides an interactive refugee camp experience for people of all ages. Through this inspiring, hands-on journey, visitors of all ages can explore what it means to be a refugee, and better understand their hardships and hope for a brighter future.
Today, more than 30 million people around the world have been displaced due to war and violence, making nearly 10 million children refugees. Through this inspiring, hands-on journey, visitors of all ages can explore what it means to be a refugee, and better understand their hardships and hope for a brighter future. With seven interactive areas, this awe-inspiring exhibit encourages visitors to consider how it feels to flee home, leave everything behind, and face the future with uncertainty and hope.
Volunteer Appreciation Night will also include light refreshments and a program of recognition for LSG volunteers. Please let us know if you plan to join us by registering online by October 26. For more information on the event contact Melanie Johnson at 678-686-9619 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
