Syrian Sweets Exchange
Share sweets. Share cultures. Share love!
As Syrian refugees work to make Arizona their new home, Syrian Sweets Exchange is helping equip and empower them for long-term success. Join us at both Changing Hands locations to enjoy sweets, Turkish coffee, henna, and crafts made by these amazing bakers and artisans. We'll even have activities for children so the whole family can build understanding and friendships with the Syrian members of our community. All proceeds go directly to the families.
FREE PARKING / LIGHT RAIL (PHOENIX)
- There is plenty of free public parking west of Changing Hands Phoenix, at 400 and 444 West Camelback. Additional free public parking across Camelback to the south.

ABOUT SYRIAN SWEETS EXCHANGE
Syria is famous throughout the Middle East for its food – particularly its sweets. Arizona is home to more than 300 Syrian families in both the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Bake sales are being held to help generate income for the bakers and introduce our new Syrian families to the wider community.
Please come and show your support and solidarity with the Syrian members of our community! You will enjoy delicious sweets and a wonderful cultural experience.
All proceeds from the bake sales go directly to the families of the bakers to help them pay for rent, utilities, transportation, etc.
