CAIR-SC: COLLECTING FOR THOSE IN NEED

Midlands-area Muslims marked the end of the Ramadan holy month with a food drive that netted 400 pounds of food for Harvest Hope Food Bank.

At least one mosque will continue collecting food through Eid-ul-Adha in January, which marks the season of the Haaj, when many Muslims make a pilgrimage to Mecca.

The drive was sponsored by the S.C. chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, said Anisah Bagasra, a Claflin University professor and CAIR board member.
