FLINT TOWNSHIP, Michigan — The Flint Islamic Center will host a fundraiser at 2:30 p.m. today at the center to raise relief money for the Haitian tragedy.

The local effort is part of a $1 million campaign among Islamic centers nationwide by the charity group, Islamic Relief, to help victims of Tuesday’s earthquake.

More than 300 families, or nearly 1,000 people, are members of the local congregation where organizers have pledged to raise $5,000-$10,000 after weekly Friday prayers today, said Abed Khirfan, of the center’s management committee. (More)
