WELCOMING WEEK 2019!

Our friends at Claremont United Church of Christ are participating in Welcoming America’s National “Welcoming Week.” A time where communities bring together immigrants and those born within their countries in a spirit of unity to build strong connections across their communities and affirm the benefits of welcoming everyone. Join us September 15, for a homemade Syrian meal and live Arabic music provided by the Los Angeles Arabs Orchestra! Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the CUCC refugee assistance fund and Claremont Canopy.

Past Events

Claremont Canopy is committed to bringing neighbors together. We are constantly planning events to increase awareness of the refugee situation, integrate recently resettled friends into the community, and connect people with resources to help them thrive. Take a look at what we have going on.
