Canned Food Drive in Honor of Deah, Yusor and Razan

Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha had big ideas for how they wanted to help the world. One of Deah’s last facebook posts was where he and Yusor were giving food and free dental supplies to the homeless. Razan, was a regular at Raleigh’s Moore Square, where she too fed and helped those in need as a leader in the community.  Last year a food drive was held to honor their service to the community.  Donations translated into over 58,000 meals to North Carolinians in need.  This year we hope to do it again.  Boxes have been placed in the Apex Mosque lobby, all members are encouraged to donated canned goods to support this cause.  Visit here for more info.
