June Blood Drive
CAIR-Chicago is taking part in a summer-long campaign called Muslms Care (www.muslimscare.org), initiated by CAIR-National, to promote community service in the Muslim community. A theme is selected for each month (June-August). June was Health Awareness Month.Thanks to all our blood donors, we managed to collect 51 units. This yielded 153 life-saving components of red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. As many as 153 patients will, insha'Allah, benefit from this joint effort. Jazakum Allah Khair!
Participating organizations (in Alphabetical Order):
- American Red Cross
- Compassionate Care Network
- Downtown Islamic Center
- Islamic Society of Northwest Suburbs
- Mosque Foundation
- Muslim Community Center
Insha'Allah we plan on continuing this effort by holding blood drives twice a year. Please stay tuned. If you or your local Masjid would like to take part in the future, please contact Dina Rehab at firstname.lastname@example.org. or 312-212-1520.
