We would like to announce an exciting new initiative in our South Florida Muslim Community. In cooperation with the Urban League of Broward, activists and leaders from multiple Islamic Community service organizations are pleased to announce: Community Fest. The purpose of the Community Fest is for the Islamic Community, in cooperation with the urban league, to host and reach out to local families in need, offering not just a meal and other giveaways & services, but also a warm hand of friendship. It will also be a day of family fun with bounce houses for kids and a program featuring local officials and community leaders speaking about important topics like anti-bullying and diversity. Food, toys, and medical exams will be given out that day to the per-registered families being identified by the Urban League and other local community organizations. Several items are raffled. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office and other local officials will also be in attendance, along with local media. We hope this will be the first of an annual gathering of communities coming together and knowing & helping one another, as God says in the Qur’an He has made us “in different nations and tribes so that we may know one another.” (49:13)
