Host an international student for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, and Madison Friends of International Students has begun matching international students and scholars with local families who will serve as hosts in this year’s Thanksgiving Hospitality Program.

This highly impactful program provides international students from around the world with the chance to spend Thanksgiving with a local family. We often hear from students served by the program that being invited to share in this tradition is one of their most memorable experiences in the United States.

Currently, MFIS is in need of hosts for more than 40 students, and this number is expected to rise in the coming weeks. Can you help MFIS meet its goal of placing every interested student with a local family for the Thanksgiving holiday?

MFIS hopes you will consider opening your home to an international student (or several!) and sharing your family’s Thanksgiving traditions. Your hospitality would be warmly appreciated.
