Help Refugees in Houston!
Mark your calendar for our Eid Workday Event on Monday, May 13th at IM's Albert and Ethel Herzstein building at 3303 Main Street, 77002. There are two volunteer shifts available: 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM. You can also register to attend the 6:00 PM volunteer shift and stay for a traditional Iftar dinner afterwards. At this event we will be assembling Eid care packages of personal care and household items for refugee families!
We also have a matching gift challenge thanks to this year's lead sponsor, The Robinhood Fund. Every dollar you donate or raise from your community will be doubled. Together, we need to raise $50,000 to provide vital services for Houston's refugees.
Of interest to our Muslim friends is Zakat designation for this fundraising event. Simply click "Yes,this donation is to be used for Zakat purposes" on the donation form to specify this type of donation. Specifically, the funds will be designated as Zakat per the recommendation of our advisor, Sheikh Joe Bradford.
Thank you for welcoming our newest Houston neighbors!
