Join with Pittsburgher’s from all across the city for a FREE morning of crafting fun to make Valentine’s Day cards to welcome refugees to Pittsburgh. This event was put together by Sloane Davidson who has recently started working for a refugee resettlement organization and was inspired to create this event by an organization in NYC, Army of Lovers to create a similar event in Pittsburgh. You can read Sloane’s blog post about this event here.
Help make this event a success. Our goal is to make 250 cards to give out to children in Pittsburgh.
