Fall Festival for Refugees

By  | 

Friends and family gathered at Rob Fleming Park for The Refugee Project’s 1st Annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 8th.

The fall festival raised funds for The Refugee Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to empower the refugee women of Burma, Bhutan, Haiti and Nepal who have been relocated to Houston, Texas by the United Nations because of religious and ethnic persecution. The organization also equips and trains these women to lead meaningful and productive lives in America.

The fall festival featured a pumpkin patch where families could select a pumpkin to raise funds for The Refugee Project.

The event was held on a gorgeous fall evening where attendees enjoyed a movie on the lawn, carnival games, trivia, pumpkin patch, face painting, cake wake, photo booth, silent auction and more. Items created by the refugee women were available for purchase at the festival and also available online at 100% of the proceeds go to help sustain the refugee women that made the products. This store is part of One Community Houston, an initiative to reach displaced refugees.
