Thank you to all who gave so generously to the Na’ah Illahee Fund, recipient of East Shore’s Share the Plate collection during the month of October. Donations collected through East Shore were over $800 in addition to donations ESUC members sent directly via the NIF website.
As a follow-up to the visit of Susan Balbas, the NIF Director, to our October 3rd morning church service, we encourage you to learn more about their efforts to build indigenous community, culture and leadership.
You are cordially invited to attend their Blue Jay Festival, an annual festival which will be held this year virtually from November 15th to 20th. NIF is excited to host a collection of virtual events featuring indigenous stories, art, learning and conversation. All festival events are FREE and available via zoom. Feel free to join for one story or the whole week! (INSERT Festival Schedule.)
For more information and the link to their interactive festival schedule, please go directly to their website.
