A Day of Service for Our Neighbors in Need
According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 37.2 million Americans live in poverty.
Day of Dignity, a day of service, is an opportunity for Islamic Relief USA volunteers to provide essential services to communities in need through interventions such as serving hot nutritious meals, providing essential items such as clothing and hygiene kits, and offering haircuts to those unable to afford them. Often, even free medical care and screenings are offered.
But it doesn’t end there: The IRUSA Day of Dignity effort extends to social media as community members spread the word to friends and family about the event and importance of humanitarian work. Many even become a part of the Islamic Relief USA page on Facebook.
