Bohras In New York Contribute to Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s Food Drive

In recognition of Hunger Action Month in September, the Dawoodi Bohra community of New York contributed to a food drive organized by the office of Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.

Held in partnership with Island Harvest, a food bank that supports individuals and families on Long Island who struggle to afford to buy food, volunteers from the Bohra community collected non-perishable food items and dropped off supplies at the Eisenhower Park administration building in East Meadow.

Regularly participating in food drives aligns with the Dawoodi Bohras’ core beliefs that nobody should go to bed hungry and that it is their duty to help vulnerable members of society.

For many years, Dawoodi Bohras in New York – like Bohras throughout the world – have regularly organized food drives as part of Project Rise, a wide-ranging global philanthropic program established by the Dawoodi Bohras to improve the lives of the less fortunate in many different ways.
