Welcoming the Refugees 

Iskashitaa Refugee Network is serving a first Thanksgiving dinner to refugees who've settled in our desert city. The meal, on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2 p.m. at the Desert Courtyard Apartments, 1411 N. Alvernon Way and Las Casitas, 3835 E. Fairmount St. will serve up traditional foods, as well as cultural foods prepared by refugees. More than 200 people are expected, and Tucsonans are welcome to participate by bringing food donations to the dinner—Thanksgiving fixings, those family favorites you can never do without and your own cultural holiday favorites. However, organizers told us they can't guarantee you'll find an empty seat since seating is limited. "The Iskashitaa Thanksgiving showcases what we can be grateful for and the plight of these people puts what we have in this country into perspective. They have so much to teach us, and we can teach them. Our city is enriched by their adding this diversity to Tucson," said Iskashitaa founder and director Barbara Eiswerth. For more info on the dinner and Iskashitaa's work, visit www.iskashitaa.org, or call 440-0100.
