“Often people who’ve been served come back and donate to our clothes closet or ask if they can volunteer. I think the idea has caught on. They’re pleased that they have neighbors here, that we’re not pushing any ideas or religion. There are no boundaries. Anyone can come. We greet them with a smile, we get to know each other, and we break bread together. It’s a way to bond. It doesn’t matter if they’re Muslim or not. We just want to help the people in our area, and this is something we can do to serve.”
