ALEXANDRIA, VA, October 30, 2015 – Newark Muslims will distribute food and supplies to the local homeless on Saturday, October 31st, during the annual Day of Dignity campaign sponsored by Islamic Relief USA. The partner of this year’s event is NIA Masjid and Community Center.
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.
Location: 229-231 Roseville Avenue, Newark, New Jersey 07107
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
“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.”
