Great – ISWM 2nd Annual Walk Against Hunger 2016

Written by admin on . Posted in Memos

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Assalaam u Alaikum, On May 21st, this last Saturday, Alhumdulillah, we had our second Ramadan Walk. We started this walk last year and we plan to continue this tradition every year, Insha’Allah. The walk was arranged to raise funds for the local food pantry in West Springfield. This food pantry helps to feed local people, Muslims and non-Muslims, who cannot afford to buy food. Minimum contribution for the walk was $10 and we raised about $1500. At the end two local businesses contributed to bring the total to $2,000, which was given to the pantry. May Allah SWT rewards everybody for their physical and monetary effort, Amen. There were about 75 brothers and sisters who walked this year. Like last year, the Mayor of West Springfield walked the whole distance with us. The walking group represented variety of age groups, young and old. There were people walking with strollers and walkers, and I also saw a mother walking holding her very young baby in her lap. It was an amazing scene. Attached are some pictures of the walk. We hope that it encourages a lot more people to take part in this important tradition. The tentative date for the next year’s walk is May 6, 2017. Have a lovely spring season and happy walking, Zubair Kareem Attached are few of the pictures from the event.
