Durham rain doesn’t stop volunteers from blessing others

In the 15-pound personal-care box, families received shampoo, razors, toothpaste, and other healthcare items.

“No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care,” said Rev. Mitchell L. Johnson, Executive Director for My Community Plan Foundation. “It reminds us how much more of the work we have to do. But here we are pleased and honor to be able to serve.”

The Zakat Foundation of America sent a small crew of volunteers from Chicago to assist in the effort as well.

“Seeing the smiles on their faces is really reiterating for us why we should be doing this more often,” said Lena Tleib, Events Coordinator for the Zakat Foundation of America.

When asked why she decided to participate in this afternoon’s event, one volunteer simply replied, “For love. This is wonderful!”
