Established in June 2019, the Salwa Project is our flagship food pantry program where we aim to lift the hardship by finding opportunities for jobs, education, and counseling while providing and serving those in need.
We are currently running an extensive Pita Bread Drive in areas where food and bread are scarce due to the outbreak of COVID-19. As part of this project, we provide and distribute bread and packages of food to those in need. To ensure safety, we hand packages of food to individuals through their car trunks to adhere to social distancing practices. The Salwa Project provides packages of food to 200 families weekly, including Muslims and non-Muslims, who live in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago and other parts of Chicago.
We urge you to spread the word about the Salwa Project so we can all stand together and support each other during times of uncertainty and concern. To learn more about how you or your company can support our efforts and get involved with us, please call us or visit our center.
Every Saturday, 11 Am to 1 PM
Make a Difference
Now is the time to positively impact the world around you, and it doesn’t take much! Every penny you give to our Pita Bread Drive will make a difference that counts, and here’s how…
Feeling the Impact
We aim to lift the hardship by finding opportunities for jobs, education, and counseling. There’s no need to come inside our building; you’ll be handed the bread while you are conveniently seated in your car. By providing fresh pita bread and packages of food for the families in need, we then move into a stage where we can find jobs or opportunities for continued education. We were able to distribute 200 dozens of fresh pita bread three times during difficult times at the start of COVID-19. Please check through our website to find out more details and information for distribution days.
We need your support
Our mission won’t be successful without your help, and your ongoing support is sincerely appreciated. We encourage individuals, businesses, and organizations to help us serve our community in times of need. You can donate $25, $50, or even $500 to take care of a day’s cost of 200 dozens worth of pita bread.
