ICNA Relief made it possible for my goal of assisting Syrian refugee families a reality. Through their interfaith tutoring opportunities, my husband and I are working with middle and high school students who are new English speakers and just learning to navigate the American school system. I get to bring my years of experience as an English teacher and ELL Coordinator to help these families. ICNA relief also made it possible for two coworkers of mine to tutor; for my friend who is throwing a birthday party for her daughter to use ICNA Relief's registry to gift to Syrian children; for my friend who runs a NYC Tour agency to launch a project wherein she will acclimate Syrian families to NYC. In short, ICNA Relief builds bridges! I would like to especially thank Umber Siddiqi and Leila Elfane for their tireless efforts on behalf of refugee families. They are angels!

I have been volunteering for ICNA Relief, USA since two years. ICNA Relief helps people with every requirement of life; from providing furniture, kitchen items, and food inside the house to cars outside the house. This organization supports refugees from scratch until they are self sufficient.

I started volunteering with ICNA Relief in 2012. I volunteered for the food drives, toys drives, and back2school.
I never knew that hunger is so prevalent in our society. What ICNA Relief is doing is humbling and eye opening. It is hard to sleep at night while you know that my neighbors are going through tough times.
It's an amazing community, and I believe that this what our country needs right now. Faith in action.

I've volunteered for ICNA Relief for over 2 years now. I've been involved in the the food pantry, homeless feeding, mobile clinic, and back to school campaigns. No one is turned away due to background, ethnicity, or religion. Hearing recipients thanking the volunteers profusely is very rewarding, to say the least. A big deal of that gratitude goes to the donors, for enabling such services to be given, through their generosity. Then the other part goes to the few staff members and big number volunteers, who work tirelessly to ensure people get the help they needed while maintaining their dignity. I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve.

I've been volunteering with ICNA Relief USA for a long time now and their work is very needed and appreciated. I worked in making and distributing food, gutting out houses and distributing water during hurricane Sandy. The organization is very hands on and involved with various programs like their Back To School Giveaway that gives school bags to children and families who need it. The Food pantry that serves people groceries, and various other programs designed to bring ease upon peoples lives.
