“FEED DETROIT” FOOD DRIVE – sponsored by MCWS and IMPACT – drop off deadline: May 26 – June 15 ONLY- see details

It’s that time again, the time of Ramadan, a month of giving! This Ramadan, let’s keep in mind our community, and let’s help those in need. We can support others and donate food to the less fortunate. By doing so, we can take advantage of a great family activity where the kids would love to help out.

“FEED DETROIT” FOOD DRIVE

Sponsored by MCWS Outreach and IMPACT

Did you know that in the City of Detroit, over 50% of the children under age 18 live in poverty?  Using poverty rates as a proxy for hunger, more than 1 in 2 children in the City of Detroit are at risk of hunger. This Ramadan in addition to IMPACT’s weekly iftars delivered to Masjid Al-Haq in Detroit, the MCWS Committee along with IMPACT will be organizing a “FeedDetroit” Food Drive. All donations will benefit those families and individuals struggling with hunger.

Donations will be accepted from  May 26 – June 15  ONLY in MCWS’s donation box.
