FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Kansas City celebrates 4th Annual ‘Day of Dignity’ Community Service Event

Kansas City, Missouri, 28 October 2017

“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.

On October 28th,  Al Inshirah Islamic Center, Islamic Relief USA and De La Salle Education Center l will host the 5th Annual ”Day of Dignity: Being of Service to Humanity” from 12:00pm-5:00pm 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.
