Zakat Foundation of America’s East Coast Office Opens Doors for Opportunity
As Zakat Foundation of America’s (ZF) operations expand, they officially launched an office on the East Coast in a meaningful way earlier this year. Based in Delaware, ZF East Coast provides several social services locally as well as to impoverished communities in neighboring states.
“The decision to launch an office on the East Coast was to respond to devastating unemployment, underemployment, and inequity in education. Furthermore, the services we envisioned would eradicate the need for dependence on government aid and uplifting the morale of all people we support,” says the ZF representative on the East Coast.
Among the many local programs ZF East Coast delivers, tutoring program that assist over 35 students for:
• SAT Prep (Preparatory College Exam)
• Arabic Language Courses
• Writing Workshop
• Math (K-12th)
• Arts courses
In addition to tutoring, ZF East Coast introduced the first ever Muslim-run Food Pantry in the state of Delaware. The food pantry provides meals and non-perishable items for families periodically.
