As we pray for those impacted by the devastating tornadoes in Kentucky, let us also join together in providing aid to those who are suffering.
Below is a list of resources — please help in any way you can, and join us in living out our motto of “Many Faiths. One Heart. Common Action.”

The Western Kentucky Red Cross has launched an online fundraiser on Facebook, making it easy to donate — and to spread the word on social media.
Muslim Americans for Compassion, in collaboration with Muslim Communities of Kentucky, are asking people to donate via GoFundMe, with all proceeds being utilized in direct partnership with the affected communities.
These organizations also are collecting donations online, with 100% of proceeds going to help tornado victims throughout the region:
