World Refugee Day

NNIC is excited to announce our first annual World Refugee Day event! We are gathering on the lawn outside the Knowledge Center on June 20 from 10am-2pm. We are partnering with Washoe County Schools and the Red Cross for this event. NNIC and Washoe County Schools are holding a bake sale (with cold beverages!) to establish a new fund to help refugee kids with their school fees. We’re also pitching our refugee tent and offering a glimpse of what life is like in a camp. The Red Cross will have information on international programs that they’d like to develop in the Reno area, including Reconnecting International Families. We’ve invited the refugee summer camp, so you may get a chance to say hello to the people who will benefit most from the bake sale!
