Last year we got a special thank you from Council-member Yvette Alexander, the representative of Ward 7:
“It’s so important to have organizations like Islamic Relief USA participate and help our community,” she said. She was eager to express her gratitude and to remind us of the problems that we face here in America, “It means a lot,” she said. “Times are hard—I represent a ward that is very economically diverse. There are a lot of families that are struggling in these economic times, and really these turkeys could make the difference between whether they have food on the table or not.”
