December 25th Muslim Volunteer Day

Michigan Muslim Community Council, in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council  brings together hundreds of individuals from around Metro Detroit to perform meaningful acts of community service every Christmas since 2007. The Jewish community calls this Mitzvah (Service) Day, and has been organizing it for over 20 years. The Muslim community promotes it as Muslim Volunteer Day, and together, these two large metropolitan communites partner to help their fellow Christian neigbors and friends

Note: All volunteers under age 18 must have adult supervision.

The Michigan Muslim Community Council extends its best wishes to our fellow Americans celebrating Christmas. Although Muslims do not celebrate Christmas, we have take this opportunity provide vital services to help Christians enjoy their holiday season. 

 For the past few years, the Michigan Muslim community has joined the Michigan Jewish community in serving our fellow Christian neighbors who are in need during the Christmas season. Both faith communities have individually organized great service activities for some of the economically disadvantaged areas around Michigan. By working together on some of these projects, we hope we can also serve a greater cause of deepening understanding and respect for each other. Please check out pictures from our previous events! 

We would like to thank Zaman International for providing many gifts that we distributed to children on 12/25, and the Muslim Students Association for sending volunteers to pack gifts in the weeks leading up to the holiday season.
