Arab American Youth Give Back This Ramadan

DEARBORN— The Lebanese American Heritage Club Young Leaders Committee (LAHC-YLC) is giving back to the needy this Ramadan through its campaign, "We The People, Feed The People."

The group is collecting cash and canned goods on behalf of two charities, the Salvation Army and Zaman International. All proceeds and donated items will go directly to the charities.

Currently the LAHC-YLC has 25 donation food boxes stationed at 25 businesses in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights.

Every Friday during Ramadan, LAHC-YLC members will visit local mosques to collect food and monetary donations during prayer time from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Islamic Center of America and Islamic Institute of Knowledge here, in addition to the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights.

Near the end of Ramadan the group also plans on hosting a dinner for Detroit’s homeless community at a mosque in Detroit. The LAHC was established in 1982, but the YLC recently launched, and celebrated its first anniversary this Summer. While the group is relatively new to the community, it has already accomplished a lot.
