A Celebration of Volunteers and Their Service to IRWP

On a blistery evening in January the Immigrant & Refugee Women’s Program Staff and Board of Directors hosted a Volunteer Recognition Dinner at Treffpunkt (meeting place in German). The gathering was catered by a current student’s catering service, Damascus Foods.

Volunteers gathered around tables and recounted their favorite student stories. They shared tips and tricks along with phone numbers and talks of coffee in the future. Many volunteers had never met one another, some had just been involved with IRWP for a few weeks. Some were native to St. Louis and others had just moved to the city. None of that mattered, all that mattered that evening was that each person cared deeply for the immigrant and refugee community and were dedicated to making an impact through service with IRWP.
