Reminder: Flint Water Drive + Syrian Relief

Please remember that there are two drives going on. The first is a water drive for the Muslims and non-Muslims of Flint, Michigan. Half of the collection Insha-Allah will be delivered to the Broome Center for Muslims for the month of Ramadan, and the other half will be delivered to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. The other drive is for the Muslim refugees and the details are below with dates and specific items requested.
