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 50,000 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. To donate online visit here.
The Apex Mosque is once again partnering with St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Raleigh to package meals as part of a Rise Against Hunger event. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030. The event will take place at St. Michael’s Church, at 1520 Canterbury Road, Raleigh on Sunday, 17-March from 2 to 4PM and will consist of packaging meals through an assembly line process. Families including children as young as 4 years are encouraged to participate. Donations are encouraged but not required. For more information and/or to register, please email Br. Asif Ansari.
