We received a request from the Arab American Association of NY for contributions of toys and food for needy families during the Ramadan season. We sent out the call to our members and over two Sundays they responded with a large collection of toys and some Middle Eastern food. The toys were distributed to happy children soon after Ramadan at the Association’s headquarters. We also sent a monetary contribution from our Sunday collection. Our staff contact, Sabrina, was grateful for our generosity.  It was a heartwarming experience for us. Many thanks to our members!
