Syria is famous throughout the Middle East for its food – particularly its sweets. Arizona is home to more than 300 Syrian families in both the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Bake sales are being held by Syrian Sweets Exchange to help generate income for the bakers and introduce our new Syrian families to the wider community.
Please come and show your support and solidarity with the Syrian members of our community! You will enjoy delicious sweets and a wonderful cultural experience.
All proceeds from the bake sales go directly to the families of the bakers to help them pay for rent, utilities, transportation, etc.
Dayspring United Methodist Church, 1365 E. Elliot Road in Tempe, is delighted to host the first Syrian Sweets Exchange in Phoenix on February 19th and 20th from 10:00am to noon. This will be a great opportunity to foster positive cross-cultural interactions and build understanding and friendship through home baked sweets. Come out to share sweets, share cultures and share love for all.
