(SAN DIEGO, CA, 7/6/06) – The San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) has initiated a food drive for the homeless as a collaborative effort involving local mosques and Islamic centers.
The food drive takes place during “Helping the Needy” month, a part of CAIR’s nationwide “Muslims Care” campaign. In this summer-long initiative, each month has a designated theme as a way of encouraging Muslim communities across the United States to reach out to their neighbors and make a positive contribution to society.
The proceeds of the food drive will go to Community Christian Services Agency, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the homeless and impoverished in San Diego.
