Helping Frederick Community During Federal Shutdown
In order to help our Frederick neighbors who are being affected by the Federal shutdown, we have asked the local Food Bank, (Friends For Neighborhood Progress) how ISF can help.
They said they are good with non-perishable food right now, but could use household cleaning supplies (laundry detergent, dish soap, etc) and hygiene items (shampoo, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, etc.)
In addition, they said that we could make monetary donations in the form of grocery store gift cards/checks/cash. Checks should be made out to ISF and in the memo field write 'Friends - Food Bank', or donale online.
Regardless of what we want to give, it would make a wonderful impact on the residents of Frederick to see their Muslim neighbors helping and caring.
ISF is willing to collect the items at the masjid.
We encourage everyone to donate asap so people can be helped sooner rather than later. Please bring to Jummah, or any other time convenient to you. Also, please keep the shutdown in mind and continue your donations until it ends, insha Allah.
