Ramdan Basket Project

2012 appeal letter

2011 Appeal Letter, Guidelines and Disclaimer

Annual charity is an obligation on every Muslim who has the means to give others from his or her annual savings and wealth.  Charity begins from home and we at MWC believe in contributing to the needy in the community we live in. 

 

Every year Muslim Women's Coalition donates Ramadan Baskets to the area shelters. In the past we have donated to Doorways for Women and Families in Arlington County, LAWS in Loudon County, the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless or AACH and the Abused Women’s Program in Montgomery County. 

 

Ramadan Baskets are large laundry baskets filled with donated items ranging from necessary personal hygiene items, to food and snacks, and a few clothing items such as socks and gloves. Our members create the baskets and deliver them to local shelters.

 

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar. We post information about how to get involved in the annual project a month before Ramadan. Reminders are usually sent on our email list serve.
