Due to the hardships many people are experiencing during the ongoing coronavirus situation, the Islamic Center of Vallejo is operating a food drive program, in hopes that we can assist any families in our community, Muslim or non-Muslim, that need assistance in this difficult time. If you or someone you know are in need of help, or if you would like to help those in need, please read on.
With over 22 million people now unemployed in the United States and Ramadan soon approaching we felt there was a need to start such an initiative here close to home. This food drive was created as an effort that could help connect those most vulnerable with essential items including food and hygiene kits.Dr. Leena Shahbaz and Br. Hannan, co-creators of the food drive program
