As a needy citizen of Md. getting disabled has really hit me especially in the pocket. Someone told me about ICM to get some food well, not only that one time but as long as they have supplies we all will get a phone call or text about coming in for some well nourished food supplies. Sister Adileh is the kindest person together with her amiable group of volunteers. I have never seen anyone move on feet that looks as though she is moving on skates. She wastes no time in getting you your food, it is like a well oiled moving production line. I am hoping MoCo, Md state provide this group with some either supplies or monetary assistance to continue providing us supplies and other new families. The need is overwhelmingly great. Thank you ICM and most of all the amiable Sister Adelia. As a needy citizen of Md. getting disabled has really hit me especially in the pocket.

ICofM provided my family with much needed food and cooking supplies. This pandemic has affected my family, and it's a blessing to know that ICofM has been there to provide this vital support for us.
We are especially grateful to Adileh and all the other volunteers who have braved the cold weather to help our communities during these difficult times.
Forever thanks and appreciation to ICofM

They gave us hope. My parents are elderly and have underlying medical conditions so iCM filled a gap with their services for the elderly during this unsettling time. Their service is much needed to help those in need and so appreciated by those they serve.

Dear gentlemen,

I hope everyone is doing well.

A message to thank the Lord, and you all. Thank you for your help. Special thanks to Mrs. Adileh, and Kanza and her husband for their kindness and support during this pandemic. Not only you all put food in my table, but also hope in our heart when nothing was going well. We are seniors, with health issues, without jobs, and family members.

To all of you, Lord bless you! You are doing a wonderful job that we have appreciated so much, and that we will never forget! Thank you so much.

Blessings.

You can tell the true strength of a community by how they deal with a crisis. Truly blessed and privileged to be working with such amazing volunteers, as the ICM Deliver with Care group. They came together as the pandemic started, despite COVID concerns they shopped, they packed, they delivered ! They learned and adapted. When the need grew they spent hours packing and hosting food drives, through the entire summer. What an amazing team of volunteers, what an amazing display of faith.

Our family and our neighbors have been receiving support from ICM from the start of their pandemic outreach. We have disability’s and are immunocompromised, and our neighbors, a family of 6, are ALL COVID positive. ICM has been incredible about providing produce boxes to both families, reaching out to make sure we are aware of events and also sending along other partner organization information. Adileh and her volunteers are kind, warm, friendly and go above and beyond to provide much needed produce and pantry items in a way that preserves dignity and is truly helpful. ICM sources and provides high quality pantry boxes with critically needed items like flour, oil, sugar, vegetables, fruit and other items. They make it happen with limited funding and are one of the BEST non profits/faith based organizations supporting a diverse community of people in need during this pandemic.

As a volunteer at ICM, I have had a wonderful experience working with an amazing team.
During this trying time, ICM has stepped up to help our community, especially with food distribution during our food drives. I love the diversity at ICM, it makes me feel welcomed and part of the community. During my experiences at ICM, I have witnessed how EVERYONE IS WELCOMED (either if you are a volunteer or someone in need).

ICM has always been involved with community service (feed the hood, food for sisters, and numerous other drives) but they have gone above and beyond during these pandemic times. From delivering food to seniors to feeding Montgomery County, the volunteers have been there for anyone who needs help. Thank you ICM!

The Islamic Center of MD (ICM) has come out in full force to help the community during these challenging times (COVID-19). The dedicated volunteers have been instrumental in giving back to the community through the organized food distribution programs at ICM. I happen to have volunteered on few occasions and enjoyed volunteering.

ICM has grown up so much and developed its identity over the past few years, incorporating new programs and projects to serve the community— both Muslims and non-Muslims. We are so proud to call ICM our first home. I am grateful to Sister Adileh, Ayaz Soddiqui, Mannan Dasti, Nadeem Ahmed, and all of the people who make up the heart and soul of the masjid and have built ICM’s role in education, worship, and service in our community.

Amazing work by the board members. Sr. Adileh Sharieff has transformed into a superwoman amid this pandemic that is keeping worshippers and help recipients away. From sourcing donations, to communicating with nearby localities and other places of worship to managing the distribution during drive-through food donations, ICM is standing as a true example of what a non-profit should be and is living the true spirit of Islam - Help Thy Neighbor!

The ICM leadership has done a great job with managing volunteers and assigning tasks. The leadership provides adequate information and is readily available for questions and clarifications, so the volunteer only needs to focus on the assigned tasks.
