Winter Collection Drive on October 10th

As the winter months approach, IAM will be collecting certain NEW items for the refugees at the Fort Dix base in New Jersey. These items can be dropped off at the masjid on Sunday, October 10th from 1pm until 5pm. We will also be accepting monetary donations in order to purchase these items. Thus far, we have used the donations collected to provide requested items for the refugees at the base and those who are currently in quarantine in Philadephia.

We will be accepting the following new items for donation:
Blankets (need 1000)
Jackets
Sweaters
Boots
Hats/Gloves
Socks

Monetary donations will be accepted through Venmo (imamalimasjid-iam) or by Paypal: imamalimasjid.com/iam/donate.

Arbaeen 1443

Join us to commemorate the Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (AS) on Monday, September 27th, 2021 at 7pm. The program will begin with Maghrib & Isha prayers, followed by recitation of the Holy Quran, English lecture by Sheikh Ameeni, and concluding with poetry/lamentations.

Afghan Refugee Response

As the Afghan refugee crisis continues to evolve, we would like to take this opportunity to update the community.  Currently, we have split the IAM response into three phases:
1)    First contact and processing
2)    Temporary refugee settlement support
3)    Permanent refugee settlement support
Phase 1 is ongoing and primarily focused on providing translators to the Philadelphia Medical Reserve Corps.  As per the previous email, any plane landing at PHL airport is met by MRC staff and volunteers.  They are then treated for any immediate medical issues and processed before being taken to the temporary refugee settlement.  If you are still interested and haven’t signed up yet, please refer to the following link: https://serv.pa.gov/

Phase 2 is about to begin and is primarily focused on providing items and support services to the temporary refugee settlements (mainly at the nearby Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst).  The goal here is to meet the immediate needs of the refugees until a permanent residence can be found for them. This includes providing short term items such as clothing, footwear, etc., as well as providing spiritual and mental support through volunteers.

Phase 3 is the final phase where once we identify where the families are being permanently settled, we will provide long term support (translators during medical appointments, showing the families where to shop, large basic needs items like mattresses/pots/pans).

Due to the constantly changing needs of the refugees, we are currently only asking for monetary donations. 100% of donations will be used to buy support items and services for them. As we get closer to Phase 3, a list of needed household goods will be developed on a per family basis and provided to the community.

May Allah bless you all.
