This is not the only effort by the Muslim Social Services Agency in Baltimore.

Once a month, Muslim Social Services Agency goes to the location where the homeless in Baltimore gather. 

Volunteers provide them with a healthy lunch that includes a sandwich, drink, fruit, a snack, as well as hygiene items.

The agency has also begun to help several senior citizens apartment complexes after the events in Baltimore left them without access to medicine, food, hygiene items and household supplies.  

Muslim Social Services Agency was joined by ICNA Relief, Islamic Relief and the Zakat Foundation to provide the senior citizens with the necessities of life.
