In the mood of Thanksgiving Day, MY Family Pantry, an arm of MY Project USA, a non-governmental organization, on Wednesday, November 23 gave out food items and winter coat jackets to 67 families in and around Westside of Columbus, Ohio.
The opening of My Family Pantry at 3036 Sullivant Avenue, Columbus which was tagged “Thanks is Giving” served refugees, immigrants and the poor in the neighborhood fresh food produce that targeted their needs.
According to MY Project USA coordinator, Dorothy Hassan, “everyone that came to the event was happy to go home with lot of items for the Thanksgiving Day. They also got coats donated by Eddie Bauer for the winter.”
She said that the Pantry will be opened to people in need on weekends but they will have to make appointment in order to prepare for the number of guests for each event.
Dorothy Hassan added that “MY Project USA is a joint project of Muslim youths, parents and community members who are committed to protect, nurture and empower our youths in the United States of America.”
