A Day of Service for Our Neighbors in Need

 The pandemic has changed our lives in many ways, especially for those living in poverty. According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 37.2 million Americans currently live in poverty.   

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. Entertainment is part of the event too. It’s a day to come together and work together for a better world.

But it doesn’t end there: The IRUSA Day of Dignity effort extends to social media as community members spread the word about the event, the movement and the importance of this humanitarian work to friends and family—many become a part of the Islamic Relief USA page on Facebook.
