Feed Their Legacy Food Drive

Photo: The Islamic Center of Raleigh delivered donations collected from the Feed Their Legacy food and fund drive to honor the slain Chapel Hill students Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha. The community donated enough to provide over 20,000 meals to local people in need. It was a deeply special day for us, and we are so grateful to be able to honor their service to the community in this way.
