Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude for the blessings we have been given in our lives. While we are thankful for our bounty, we should also remember that hunger is a very real problem in our own community.
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon Him, is reported to have said, "He is not a Muslim who goes to bed satiated while his neighbor goes hungry."
This Thanksgiving, join the Muslim Women's Organization as we try to bring some extra hope and joy to local families who could use a little extra help with our 8th annual Hope in a Basket: Thanksgiving Drive. Thanksgiving meal packages will be distributed to families of students in Title 1 schools in Central Florida. This year we hope to assist 600 families.
Every $30 provides one family with a complete Thanksgiving meal. Every dollar that you are able to donate helps. All donations are tax-deductible and can be given to MWO Board members and volunteers or made online at: www.launchgood.com/hib
To volunteer and help us assemble baskets on Thursday, November 15th (location to be announced), please go the following link to sign up for a shift. Volunteer hours will be provided: www.volunteersignup.org/BX84T
