With the support of Islamic Relief USA, the Refugee Dream Center distributed Ramadan Food Boxes to families in the refugee community on Saturday morning. The Refugee Dream Center works to “facilitate their resettlement process and integration into their new lives in the United States.” This is the second year the organization has distributed Ramadan Food Boxes.

“Last year we got 84 boxes,” said Omar Bah, executive director of the Refugee Dream Center. “This year we got much more, 120 boxes, from Islamic Relief USA based in Virginia.”

Translators were on hand to help people navigate the process of getting their boxes.

The next event scheduled by the Refugee Dream Center is World Refugee Day, on June 23. Be sure to check it out.
