ICNA New York plans to hold 15 Back-to-School Giveaway events this year across the New York Metropolitan area, including Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester.
At each of these giveaway programs, hundreds of needy families will be given free school bags filled with school supplies, serving around 6,000 children from needy households. These programs are aimed to serve those who are in need, no matter their race, religion or gender.
This project is an embodiment of the teachings of Islam, as the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself said “Whoever goes to bed while his neighbor is hungry is not a true believer”.
The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the application of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services, social justice and relief efforts.
