Community

PAIRWN is committed to celebrating the rich cultural heritage of our communities while honoring our differences and similarities.

By teaching ourselves to value and understand our own cultures, we learn the most important lessons of leadership: self-esteem, tolerance, and collaboration.

Several hundred people attend the luncheon, enjoying ethnic foods, traditional music and dance, along with presentations by individual members on the history and culture of their groups. Members of PAIRWN volunteer their time and ideas to make these events successful.

Annual Celebrating the Holidays with Diversity Luncheon

Our Annual Luncheon is a well-attended event held to celebrate together the diversity of winter holidays and enjoy time together with our local communities. Enjoy a holiday dance and music performance from local groups as well as a potluck luncheon and gifts for the children!

Senior Outings

Longwood outingBecause of language and cultural barriers, elderly immigrants and refugees are often isolated from society. Our aim is to create a supportive environment for these elderly to bond with each other through different social events.

At the same time, these events provide the opportunity for youth to be more involved with the elderly and thus
bridge the generational and cultural gaps that often
exist in immigrants’ families.

Chocolate World outingOur recent events include trips to the Whitaker Center IMAX Cinema, Longwood Garden, and Hershey Chocolate World, and a Senior Games Night!

PAIRWN is in need of financial support for these activities.  Please consider making a donation.
