Global Parents Support is a Palmerston North group that started in 2017. It is run by mums and one dad from various ethnicities.
The group also runs Global Passport during the Festival of Cultures and Global Kitchen, which is cooking classes for children.
Global Parents Support committee member Kari Highstead said the group would like as many cultures involved as possible, not necessarily on the committee. It is also a way for immigrants to feel more involved in the city.
Global Parents Support volunteers were assisted on Saturday by students from Freyberg High School, Palmerston North Girls' High School, and Ross Intermediate School.
