ALEXANDRIA, VA, November 18, 2015 – Islamic Relief USA and New York Muslims to Serve Neighbors in Need on ‘Day of Dignity’ this weekend on Saturday, November 21st.
Islamic Relief USA has partnered with local organizations across the United States for over a decade to host the annual Day of Dignity event. Day of Dignity creates an opportunity for caring individuals from diverse communities to provide services to their neighbors in need. Food, clothing, blankets, and hygiene kits are just some of the items distributed during Day of Dignity events. And, often, free medical care, screenings and even barber services are provided. It’s a day to come together and work together for a better world. The food and services are available to anyone in need, regardless of faith.
In partnership with the Muslims Women’s Institute for Research and Development (MWIRD) at the:
Mullaly Recreation Center
1020 Jerome Avenue (between 164th St and 165th St)
Bronx, NY 10452
Time: 11/21 from 10:30am – 4pm
“Islam teaches that we should not eat while our neighbor is hungry,” according to Islamic Relief USA. “Our annual Day of Dignity brings communities together to care for our neighbors. We are issuing a call to organizations around the country to find new, long-lasting ways to give back to our communities.”
