Red Cross Thanks the Islamic House of Wisdom for Encouraging Blood Donations!
Last Monday, August 26th was a day of action and assistance at the IHW. Members of  the faithful community attended the blood drive to  help the Red Cross  and hospitals who have been calling for urgent blood donations. Imam  Elahi participated in the event. He stated that, "we are part  of this  great nation. We should build bridges of interaction and  understanding  not just through our tongue and lip service but through our  actions.  Islam is about sharing, serving and saving souls. Imam  concluded, while  the terrorists in the Middle East shed blood and  destroy the  lives of the people, we are here to share our blood to save  the  suffering souls."

Special Thanks to all who participated in the Blood drive,  to all volunteers & staff at the IHW and members of the Red Cross  for a successful event!
