WEST VIRGINIA FRIENDS OF SYRIAN REFUGEES UPDATE
There was a wonderful positive meeting on January 14th at the First Presbyterian Church to update
everyone about the possibility of 150 Syrian refugees being resettled in West Virginia. However, as of
January 18, there was no clear information on when or if this would happen. To follow these developments,
visit the WV Friends of Syrian Refugees Facebook page. Contact Mavis Grant-Lilley at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join the Interfaith Committee on planning this event.
MONONGALIA COUNTY CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER EVENTS
Here’s a unique way to support the MCCAC from their May newsletter: “For a minimum donation of $25, you
can honor your friends or family on their birthday and support a young victim of abuse on theirs. By joining
the MCCAC’s Birthday Club, you will ensure that a child abuse victim in Monongalia County will receive a
card and present on his/her birthday. If the donation is made in honor, or memory, of a friend or family
member his/her birthday will be recognized on the MCCAC Birthday Calendar and they will receive a card
informing them of the donation in their honor. This is a great opportunity to support a great cause and
ensure that a young child abuse victim has a happy birthday!” For more information on this opportunity and
the upcoming event on August 20 at the Tug Boat Depot in Star City, go to www.moncocac.org.
MORGANTOWN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
The Morgantown Human Rights Commission meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm in
the Public Safety Building (300 Spruce Street) conference room.
