Muslim charity distributing essential for locals
ICNA Relief in Chicago is distributing food boxes to those who have lost their jobs, homebound elderly, widows, and other low-income neighbors.
Entering the fourth week of this new reality, many neighbors are worried about where, when, and how to provide the next meal for their families.
On Saturday, April 11, ICNA Relief will be distributing food boxes at its Rogers Park food pantry, 2809 W. Devon Ave., as volunteers line up to deliver food boxes to local families in need from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The community is encouraged to join the national ICNA Relief efforts to share the responsibility of assisting our vulnerable neighbors.
ICNA Relief is a subsidiary of the Islamic Circle of North America, operating across the U.S. with programs such as homeless women's transitional homes, food pantries, back-to-school giveaways, Muslim family services, women's hygiene kits, winter clothing drives, disaster relief, free health screenings, and more.
ICNA Relief, in collaboration with other organizations, announces the opening of a free telehealth services helpline to advise patients on non-urgent questions or concerns without having to visit medical clinics or a doctor's office during this COVID-19 health crisis. Call (630) 444-7411 from 6 to 9 p.m. weekdays or noon to 3 p.m. weekends.
The ICNA Relief-Chicago also has a Glendale Heights Food Pantry, 1781 Bloomingdale Road. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, although you should call (844) 414-4862 to assure someone is there during the COVID-19 crisis.
