ICNA Relief Chicago is distributing food boxes to those who have lost their jobs, homebound elderly, widows, and other low-income neighbors.
As we enter the fourth week of this new reality, many neighbors are worried about where, when, and how to provide the next meal for their families.
Distribution of food boxes was organized on Saturday, April 11 from ICNA Relief Rogers Park food pantry (2809 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60659) as volunteers lined up to deliver food boxes to local families in need. ICNA Relief also encouraged all to join the national efforts to share the responsibility of assisting vulnerable neighbors.
ICNA Relief is a subsidiary of the Islamic Circle of North America, operating across the Nation with programs such as homeless women’s transitional homes, food pantries, back to school giveaways, Muslim family services, women’s hygiene kits, winter clothing drives, disaster relief, free health screenings, and more.
ICNA Relief, in collaboration with other organizations, announces the opening of a FREE tele-health services helpline to advise patients on non-urgent questions or concerns without having to visit medical clinics or a doctor’s office during this COVID-19 health crisis.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. It serves as both a reminder of one of the most traumatizing occurrences to unfold on American soil and as a testimony to the resilience of every community living here in America.
