Dinner gives group chance to give back to community
In addition to sharing cultures and food, the YMCA International Dinner is also about meeting and networking with others in the community, and one newly formed nonprofit group hopes to do just that.
The Royal Nepal Beckley Club is a newly formed volunteer service group of students who share a belief in “humanity, positivism, and advancement.”
Club member Subash Chamling said the group is comprised of Nepali students who have been a part of the Beckley community for some time.
“This community has given us so many things and we want to give the community something in return. We owe them a great deal,” he said.
The international dinner was the group’s first event, but they are hoping to connect with others to find out what some of the community’s needs are.
They will be taking part in a local Adopt-A-Highway program and hope to find other service-oriented projects to assist with.
