MCALLEN — The Muslim community is coming together to give away food and other essential products to families in need.
Every Saturday for the next several weeks, the RGV Muslim community will give out 200 boxes of essentials.
Inside the boxes are non-parashhiable food, toiletries, and cleaning supplies.
Sumpul Ankvi with the Islamic Society of South Texas said cars started lining up two hours before the distribution.
This really opened their eyes to the need the community is in.
“We want to tell everybody that we are here for you,” said Anke. “We are supporting you and we feel your hardship and we will do as much as we can.”
