BENEFITING: FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH

THE STORY:

The International Student Center of Block Island is a hospitality center operating in the basement of First Baptist Church (d.b.a. Harbor Church) which aims to welcome and serve the more than one hundred international students on J-1 and other visas, who come to live and work on the island every summer. Many of these students arrive alone, and have to struggle with the very real challenges of loneliness, homesickness, and culture shock. The International Student Center (ISC) is committed to welcoming and serving these students by providing them with a safe, alcohol-free space for them to gather, relax, commune, and share stories together. In addition to offering two free meals a week at the church, ISC provides the students with a place to play ping-pong, pool, videogames, to watch T.V., to use our Wi-Fi, to rent a bike, to use our computers and printer, to pick up basic supplies, and perhaps most important, simply to talk to a friendly and listening ear. This fundraiser is one way of increasing support for the number of services we provide, and all of your contributions will go toward the operation of ISC this 2016 summer season.
