BUFFALO, N.Y. – Islamic Relief USA held is annual Day of Dignity campaign in major cities throughout the country, including here in Western New York in Buffalo’s LaSalle Park Sunday afternoon.
“It’s one day a year for us to come out here & give back to people who don’t have access to services like these,” volunteer Faisal Zahoor said. “I’m lucky to have a bed and warm food every night, & not everyone is that fortunate.”
Islamic Relief USA and multiple other donors contributed to the day's event
This year, 20 cities across the country participated in the event, said Naeem Muhammad, the U.S. programs manager for Islamic Relief USA.
Islamic Relief USA, San Diego’s “Day of Dignity” was one of several similar events that have been held across the country to reach out to the indigent and lower-income households in need of services and the staples of everyday living.
National partner, Islamic Relief USA, said past events have inspired volunteers to establish service programs and organizations that aid communities year-round, said spokesman Minhaj Hassan.
