The blood drive is part of CAIR’s annual summer-long “Muslims Care” campaign, which is designed to encourage volunteerism in the American Muslim community.

The drive is co-sponsored by the Compassionate Care Network, the free health clinic run by the Inner City Muslim Action Network (IMAN), and LifeSource, the largest blood center in Illinois serving approximately 60 area hospitals.

WHAT: “Muslims Care” Blood Drive
WHEN: Thursday, July 17, 2008; 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
