Islamic Circle of North America Food Pantry Opens up on Burke Avenue
By Robert Press
Saturday afternoon The Islamic Circle of North America ICNA Relief opened up its new food pantry at 1277D Burke Avenue off Gun Hill Road and across from the Masjid Noor-ul-Huda Islamic Center. This is in addition to their current site on Cruger Avenue in the Bronx.
Many say that this new ICNA food pantry could not have been made possible without the help from Mr. Shabbir Gul, a leader in the Muslim community. Many of ICNA’s elected official friends were on hand, as well as Mayoral candidate Scott Stringer to new Councilman Kevin Riley.
ICNA volunteers are ready for the food giveaway after the opening ceremony.
