Annual/Bi-Annual Community Events

Events for American Friends & Partner Ministries

HIS hosts a welcome dinner for new international students at the beginning of each semester, a spring friendship banquet, and an annual free furniture giveaway. HIS partner ministries donate food, time, and resources to make these events happen.

HIS supports our partner organizations by providing a variety of friendship and cultural trainings, including Friendship in 60 and Friendship in 40.

The annual HIS Partners Dinner is an opportunity to hear about the work of HIS and our vision to touch even more lives. Guests have an opportunity to financially support the ongoing work of the Manhattan HIS Association.
