Refugee Family Volunteer

Looking for a socially-distant way to get involved with the refugee family project? Consider volunteering to assist our Welcome Team with an outdoor event at the church welcoming our refugee family to Des Moines. The family is expected to arrive in September, and the outdoor welcome event will take place within the first few weeks after the family’s arrival. We will be following current public health recommendations to encourage social distancing at our outdoor event. Planning meetings take place over Zoom, and we’d love to have you join us!

If you’re interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Mark Doherty at or 515.867.4341. To read more about the refugee family project, click here.
