In 2013, the Muslim Women of Orlando will continue their support of Heart of Florida United Way’s Schools and Communities: Together for Tomorrow program with their 3rd Annual Hope in a Basket Thanksgiving baskets. Over the past three years, the Muslim Women of Orlando have helped get sponsors to pack and give Thanksgiving baskets complete with turkey and all the trimmings to 290 HFUW Together for Tomorrow families in need in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole County schools.
Last year, students at Memorial Middle School, Palmetto elementary, Richmond Heights Elementary, Reedy Creek Elementary, and English Estate Elementary all received baskets for the students on the schools’ homeless list. This year’s goal is to donate 150 baskets to families in need. If you would like more information on this project, go to www.themwo.org. Volunteers are needed to help pack and deliver baskets to participating schools. Interested volunteers can contact Kayla Lopes at firstname.lastname@example.org. Assembly will start at 10 a.m. on Friday, November 22, 2013 at Memorial Middle School.
