WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13TH 2021 AT THE PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME CANTON, OHIO
A Letter from the IWC Volunteer Executive Director
I want to thank you for “choosing” to be a part of the “solution” for refugees and immigrants in the Akron/Canton area. Your participation, and the generosity of those who made a financial impact, is greatly appreciated. Refugee and immigrant families will be helped.
Last night, we made it to the 50-yard line. Would you help us reach the endzone by sharing in your network and with your friends the work of the International Welcome Center? Your influence could make the difference!
If you would like to donate, or share with someone how they could make donation, please share this link: www.theiwc.org
Thank you again for being a part of the IWC’s Night at the Hall of Fame.
I’m cheering for you! Dr. Cary Duckett
