Project Downtown Atlanta

Excellent way to serve the community, occurs on Sundays.

•It is an awesome program in which volunteers help serve hungry people.
•The feeling afterwards is certainly rewarding!
•For those interested in feeding the hungry, there is a sheet being passed around.
•We will contact you  and try to set up dates in which we all can have a chance of going there and participating.

There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.
