That Ramadan Spirit

Every year there is a community of CCAD families that put their hands and
hearts together to do charitable acts for people living in and around Abu
Dhabi.

Last year MPSN Events Director Dena Nusair spearheaded this effort, and
more than 600 care packages were made and distributed to those in need.
This year Dena is arranging food baskets that will supply a family of six with
food for one week. The cost of one basket is 150 dhs. The deadline for this
is Saturday, April 20th.

Throughout the month Dena will also be doing a used clothing drive
and collecting packaged meals to be delivered to laborers. Please contact
Dena at 054 414 3131 if you are interested in contributing.

included grocery stores, dry cleaning, cleaning companies, and other services. Though they are
often changing, most are neighborhood cornerstones and have become indispensable while living
