Episcopal diocese fund-raiser to help children in Syria

From Western Massachusetts-

The Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts' Christ Church Cathedral is sponsoring an inter-faith fund-raiser to aid children in war-torn Syria.

The June 5th event, from 5 to 8 p.m., at The Cedars, 419 Island Pond Road, is being organized by cathedral to benefit the New Hampshire-based nonprofit, NuDay Syria, a member of the American Relief Coalition for Syria.

"As a church community we feel a strong need to respond to the overwhelming crisis in Syria. Through other members of our greater church we found out about this organization located near us, doing amazing work," said Steve Abdow, the diocese's canon for mission resources.
