--FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE--

On Saturday, August 27, 2011, Jersey City Muslims will be extending a helping hand to their neighbors during these tough economic times. The Jersey City branch of ICNA will be distributing school bags filled with school supplies to local children in partnership with Al-Tawheed mosque during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

This initiative is part of ICNA Relief’s national Back-2-School Giveaway Project, which is hosting over 30 similar events across the U.S. These efforts are helping over 15,000 children nationwide, where each child present will receive a school bag filled with supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, rulers, crayons and scissors.

The month of Ramadan also gives special importance to increasing charitable acts, as fasting develops compassion for those who are poor and needy, inspiring the act of giving. Through the Back to School Giveaway, ICNA will inspire the American Muslim community to partake in this commendable act of helping struggling, low-income families provide for their children.
