FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kansas City celebrates 4th Annual ‘Day of Dignity’ Community Service Event
Kansas City, Missouri, 1 October 2016
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” Although these words were spoken over 40 years ago by the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Jr., they still ring true today.
This coming Saturday, Al Inshirah Islamic Center, The Aim4Peace Program, and De La Salle High School will host the 4th Annual ”Day of Dignity: Taking our Community Back, 1 Day at a Time” on October 1, 2016, 11:00am-4:30pm at De La Salle High School located on 36th And Troost Ave. This event is sponsored by Global Humanitarian Organization Islamic ReliefUSA. The Day of Dignity is a community outreach event focused on building a model community life and establishing the bonds that tie our community together. According to community coordinator Shahidah Salaam: “The Day of Dignity is about finding ways to give back to the local community and those in need. We want to be of service to our community and find ways that help provide the services and things that they need to help them through the season especially during the cold months. We are bridging the gap between faith based organizations and rallying up with violence prevention organizations to help spread awareness and bring about change in the urban core”. This event will provide much needed resources for participants including; hot meals, haircuts, groceries, winter clothing, health screenings, employment resources, and much more. The Day of Dignity will also feature live performances by Aasim Sujud, The Reminders, “Lil Niqo”, Zaimah, Erica Danae, Aanysa, and a special appearance by the 2013 Hijab Contest Winner Yasmeen Sabir. Come be a part of the solution; support this noble effort by giving back to our great community. For more information, visit: http://www.alinshirah.com/ dayofdignity
