Here at Partners in Design much of the work we do is primarily for cultural and social organizations and nonprofits. These folks have been our clients for many years and we’re proud of the good work that they contribute to our communities. To reciprocate, each year we try to offer pro bono work to an organization who otherwise couldn’t afford professional design services.
There is no shortage of worthy organizations, but we’d like to share with you one we have begin working with whose mission is particularly important given the results of our recent election—Refugee Women’s Alliance or ReWA.
ReWA serves over 11,000 refugees and immigrants each year in the Puget Sound area. Their staff of 125 collectively speak over 50 languages. Many were ReWA clients themselves. The beauty of ReWA is that they provide a wide range of wrap-around services for every member of refugee and immigrant families—from infants to seniors—designed to make a long-lasting impact of their client’s lives as they transition to a new community. Some examples include their Early Learning Center, ESL classes, employment and vocational training, citizenship classes, domestic violence and behavioral health help, and housing and homelessness prevention.
ReWA is currently in the middle of a Capital Campaign to open a 5000 sf addition to their main center int he Rainier Valley in order to serve even more clients at a critical time in our nation’s history.
If you’d like to help, here’s an opportunity. Next Friday, Feb 24th, ReWA is hosting a special benefit with Seattle Shakespeare’s Bring Down the House Part 1, an adaption of Shakespeare’s Henry VI adapted by Rosa Joshi and Kate Wisniewski.
The $60 ticket price includes pre-show hors d’oeuvres reception (cash bar), admission to Bring Down the House, Part 1, post-show conversation with the cast, and a $37 donation to ReWA’s Capital Campaign.
Purchase your tickets through the Friends of ReWA page to support ReWA and see a great performance at the same time!
