Making it in America – Webinar for Refugees & Others
May 27 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
As part of MCC and SRVIC’s new webinar series Making It in America, join us this Saturday for an informative discussion about how to use OfferUp and other online platforms to find furniture, kitchenware, and all kinds of household supplies —for free! The webinar will be simulcast in English and Dari with a live-streamed bilingual Q&A session at the end. Anyone can benefit, not just refugees.
10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. | Saturday, May 27 | Free; no registration required | Join us online at mcceastbay.org/live
