On June 3, 2023, NOC and Island Lutheran Church held a very successful social event that drew a diverse group of individuals from Island Lutheran Church and the families and communities that NOC serves locally.
The event allowed individuals from both communities to become acquainted and build relationships. The participants—both children and adults—enjoyed delicious tacos, chips, cookies, fruit salad, and cold beverages that were provided.
Dr. Sharma, Founder & Chair of NOC, gave a brief account of how this partnership has evolved since 2019, developing into an important center for children to participate in NOC’s afterschool and enrichment programs. It is also an important center for NOC to offer courses and workshops from its health and wellness program, as well as its workforce/community development activities.
Dr Sharma added that NOC is highly indebted to the Church and its members for making their facility available. NOC appreciates that the Church recognizes the importance of this partnership and the services it provides to our neighbors in need. Dr Sharma thanked Flor Mora for her leadership as NOC’s Program Manager. She, together with her team, has made this center successful.
A great day to remember!
