Thursday, November 8, 7:00 - 8:30 PM, Dining room
For 30 years, Questscope has walked alongside young people whose lives are ravaged by war and poverty. They provide emergency assistance, alternative education, and mentorship. And places to bloom again where hope is possible. In the current crisis inside Syria, Questcope supports over two million people who have been made homeless (internally displaced) by this conflict. Through local partnerships a network of 4,000 staff and volunteers supply food, medicine, water/sanitation, and shelter in 100 locations across Syria. They also provide psychosocial counseling, protection care for the most vulnerable, and education for out-of-school children.

Our Lady of Grace has also partnered with Questscope. OLG and The Minnesota Orchestra have had two benefit concerts raising over $150,000 for Syrian relief. What difference has that made? Come, join us Thursday night Nov 8th and find out. Light refreshments.
