Muslims Care: IL Muslims Collect Meals for Food Drive

www.muslims-care.org As of August 8, 2005, the Chicagoland Muslim community summer canned food drive has provided 22,678 meals, through the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the Northern Illinois Food Bank. These numbers are not final, because food has not yet been picked up from all locations. If your organization has a barrel of food that has not yet been picked up, please contact me, so we can update the numbers. In addition to the food collected, the Muslim community’s online food drive (organized through the Greater Chicago Food Depository website) collected $4,084 (making it the most successful online food drive ever conducted by the Greater Chicago Food Depository). These funds paid for 16,791 meals.
