CAIR-NJ: Muslim Youth Urged to Volunteer at Soup Kitchen

CAIR-NJ encourages Muslim youth from New Jersey to volunteer for the “Muslims Serve Day” at the Morristown Interfaith Soup Kitchen. Several Muslim youth are already participating and approximately 10 more youth volunteers are needed. Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) stated, “Help the weak among you, help your neighbor if he seeks your help, feed him if he is hungry.&quot

Muslims Against Hunger is spearheading this project at the Morristown Interfaith Soup Kitchen. The Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, Inc. is an ecumenical effort supported and run by funding and volunteers from 34 congregations, local and corporate businesses from the greater Morristown area.

Muslims Against Hunger Project was invited to join as a permanent sponsor of CSK in Nov 2005 and was voted by the CSK Board of trustees to represent Muslims on the CSK Board of trustees in Jan 2006.
