First Annual Eid Gift Drive

Park51 and the Muslim Consultative Network are proud to present our first annual Eid Gift Drive!

Gifts for Eid is a project whose goal is to provide gifts to the less fortunate children in our community (the New York metropolitan area) during this joyous Eid-ul- Fitr.

This is our first year taking on this endeavor, and we hope to make this year’s Eid Gift Drive successful with your participation and support. We are in need of your assistance and help as we¬†are collecting gifts and toys (see below for a list of suggestions) that are to be distributed to the most needy children in our community.

Please note that gifts should be new and are to remain unwrapped – the Park51 and MCN team will be responsible for wrapping and delivering gifts. All we ask is for your willingness to participate and your generous donations. Every effort is made to ensure that the children/families receiving the gift(s) feel no different than anyone else.

We will be accepting gifts beginning on Monday August 22, 2011 until Saturday August 28, 2011.

If you are interested in helping us, you can drop off your gift donations at Park51:

Location: 51 Park Place
New York, NY 10007
Date: August 22, 2011 to August 28, 2011
