As you may know, Muslims around the world are fasting this month in recognition of Ramadan, a Islamic period of physical sacrifice and spiritual reflection.
In the spirit of Ramadan, American Muslim Hunger Relief will bring a group of volunteers to the Mary Brennan Inn, a soup kitchen in Hempstead, to help feed those in need. I wrote a story in May 2010 about a similar effort by the area group Muslims Against Hunger Project.
Here’s the info for the day of service in the event that you are able to participate:
Tuesday, August 16, 8:30am-1:30pm
