After a two-year hiatus due to Covid, the Lexington Refugee Assistance Program (LexRAP) is holding its third international meal, prepared by our refugee cooks, on November 13 at Temple Isaiah in Lexington. Tickets are required for attendance.

Says LexRAP Founder and President Marianne Boswell, “We are delighted to be once again holding our gala. We are also grateful to Lexington residents, businesses, and congregations for their support both financially and in terms of volunteers over the years.”

LexRAP is a Lexington-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 2015, helping refugees to settle in the United States and to become productive, well-adjusted members of the community. The organization is an entirely volunteer effort; fully 100 percent of donations go directly to Refugee Support Services.

Today, LexRAP serves 31 refugee families in and around Lexington with educational support, tutoring, employment assistance, help obtaining healthcare, socialization, transportation, and other services. Families supported hail from 11 nations. All have members working in Lexington and neighboring communities.
