In just a few weeks the Feed My Starving Children mobile pack event will be held in Ithaca. Volunteers from all the different religious congregations in Ithaca come together and make food packages for children that are shipped to many parts of the world where conditions have become difficult through natural or man-made disasters. The meals packed are halal.
Last year was our first year formally participating as the Ithaca Muslim community at this event, and this year we have reserved shifts for 10 workers on three of the days. Those of us who volunteered last year remember a nice experience of working alongside each other with our children, and seeing our community represented among those of our neighbors.
Watch for more information about this to be shared soon, and sign up for a work shift on one or more of the days. Children are welcome to participate.
