"Righteousness does not consist in whether you face towards the east or the west. The righteous man is he who believes in Allah and the last day, in the Angels and the Book and the Prophets; who for the love of Allah gives his wealth to his kinsfolk, to the orphans, to the needy, to the wayfarers and to the beggars, and for the redemption of captives; who attends to his prayers and pays the alms tax; who is true to his promises and steadfast in trial and adversity and in times of war. Such are the true believers; such are the God fearing."
- Holy Qur'an, 2:177
Based in Central Florida and with volunteers across the nation, United Muslim Foundation HungerTeam has been quietly serving people in need through community service for years. UMF participates in a variety of events like helping people in need from serving at soup kitchens and orphanages, picking fruits and vegetables at local farms to donate to the needy, getting food, clothes and school supplies to donate to schools and charity festivals, running marathons to help those with cancer and so much more.
Launching Fall 2014: UMF ECRA: Encouraging Children to Read Ahead
The first of its kind reading incentive program, UMF ECRA: Encouraging Children to Read Ahead couples reading and writing skills to incentivize the love of learning. Students at Midway Elementary School, are encouraged to read at or above their grade level, summarize in grade-appropriate writing prompts to "save up" for unique prizes. Prizes, ranging from school supplies to branded toys, encourage reading and writing skills beyond the classroom! Join us to CHANGE EVERYTHING, by encouraging one of Sanford, Florida's poorest communities to empower themselves into the future.
UMF Volunteers can tally up their community service hours as recognized by Seminole County School Board, Bright Futures and UMF's own Scholarship Program. Join us to become part of a team that’s making a difference!
