The Muslim Community Resource Center at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS-MCRC) is distributing meals to people in need for Thanksgiving.
The nonprofits have distributed meals for the holiday for several years and will modify this year’s distribution to a drive-through event set for Tuesday, Nov. 23, from 4 to 6 p.m.
MAPS-MCRC is partnering with Kits for Peace to additionally provide blankets, jackets, and more warming items. More than 1,000 boxed meals, including Halal Turkeys as requested, can be picked up at the MAPS in Redmond.
Meals were prepared by local restaurants.
“Our low-risk, drive-through model of Thanksgiving boxed meal pickup at MAPS Redmond is our way of spreading love and sharing our blessings with our neighbors, aid recipients, partners, and volunteers, while adhering to the governor’s guidelines on social distancing and safety protocols,” MAPS-MCRC founder and CEO Nickhath Sheriff said in a press release.
