Celebrating Friendship, Beauty, and Diversity on New York City’s Lower East Side
July 18, 2015 – 3:00pm – 7:00pm
East 6th Street between Avenue D and FDR
Refresh is a collaborative block party that takes place between the Jacob Riis and Lillian Wald Housing Developments on East 6th Street in lower Manhattan. Over the past two years the event has averaged 5,000 attendees, featuring free food, live music, games for children, live gospel presentations, scripture distribution, and more. Last year one out of every four attendees left with a copy of scripture in hand.
The Park Forum has chosen to partner with The American Bible Society and OneHope International to distribute scripture for the event this year. This event engages our community on our core mission of increasing scriptural engagement while also extending us beyond our daily devotional audience.
If you would like to join us you can register to volunteer at Eventbrite for a shift and find out more by joining our Facebook event. Steven and his wife Emily will be around all day, and we would love to meet you.
