This comes from a CAIR press release:
(San Jose, 9/18/08) – Muslims from around the Greater San Francisco Bay Area will host the 5th Annual Human Dignity Day for the Homeless on Saturday, September 20th, 2008 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at South Bay Islamic Association 325 N. 3rd Street San Jose, CA. 95112 and the corner of San Pablo Avenue and 32nd Street, Oakland, CA.
The Muslim organizations will provide hot meals, water, t-shirts, towels, and hygiene packages to San Jose’s and Oakland’s homeless population.
Homelessness is a national epidemic in America. It is a condition that does not discriminate and it can affect anyone at anytime. The Human Dignity Day is a day to recognize the plight of the homeless and extend a helping hand towards them.
The Coalition of Muslim organizations scheduled this event during the HOLY MONTH OF RAMADAN.
“Ramadan is a time of increased compassion and caring for others. Our goal is to give the homeless community some relief,” said Habibe Husain, founder of RAHIMA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION, dedicated to help the needy people
