Every year, during the Holy month of Ramadan, hundreds of Okie Muslims attend CAIR-OK’s Annual Day of Service at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to package food for their fellow Oklahomans in need and learn more about the work of the food bank.

This past Ramadan Day of Service was held on June 17 and saw almost 200 Muslims volunteer to package more than 21,000 meals for their fellow Oklahomans.

The Oklahoma Muslim community is an active, civically engaged community that desires an enhanced quality of life for all residents of Oklahoma. The Annual Ramadan Day of Service is also a part of the Oklahoma Muslims Care campaign, a program designed to facilitate community service opportunities for Oklahoma Muslims. That campaign highlights the commitment to service toward the betterment of all in the state by giving back to those in need.

CAIR Oklahoma is the state’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties of all people, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

La misión de CAIR Oklahoma es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
