The Social & Welfare Committee has selected Rohingya for Udhiyah/Qurbani this year to be done through Islamic Relief and Bedesh. The cost is $150 per goat. Rohingya was selected because many of our fellow Muslims are facing chronic food shortages and starvation.

The money collection will begin IMMEDIATELY, and the deadline to pay for Udhiyah/Qurbani through IAR is July 28, 2020.

If you would like to get Udhiyah done through IAR, you can purchase the tickets and pay online, or in the kiosks in the lobby, or directly to the Social & Welfare Committee Office.
