'Muslims Care' Campaign on Hunger, Breast Cancer Awareness

Washington, DC: A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group has called on American Muslims to join its third annual campaign designed to encourage volunteerism by supporting efforts to raise hunger and breast cancer awareness.
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking Muslims nationwide to focus on these two important issues during its annual summer-long "Muslims Care" campaign. Washington-area Muslims will participate in the Komen National Race for the Cure in Washington D.C., on June 2. CAIR is also supporting Hunger Awareness Day on June 5.
Visitors to CAIR's "Muslims Care" website, http://muslims-care.com/, may download a toolkit containing information about how to become a volunteer and suggesting a variety of other volunteer activities such as blood drives, health awareness fairs and student tutoring. CAIR is suggesting that community members visit the website to submit local volunteer opportunities and to see what activities are available in their states.
