A Pullman church is planning a concert this weekend to raise money for World Relief Spokane.

World Relief Spokane works with local churches to help refugees settle in the area by providing them with basic necessities, housing and helping them apply for public services, employment, public schooling and English classes.

The concert will be at Community Congregational United Church of Christ, 525 N.E. Campus St., Sunday at 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 and each dollar will be matched 2 to 1 by a federal grant, according to an announcement.

The event will include music by musicians who were once refugees in their time. Other performances will focus on the concert’s theme of social justice. Another concert highlight is a a 14-piece string orchestra performance.

Refreshments will also be served.

Tickets are available at the door  or at Neill’s Flowers and Gifts in Pullman and BookPeople of Moscow.
