To honor the victims of 9/11 at the upcoming 10th anniversary, the oldest Muslim organization in the United States is holding “Muslims for Life” campaign on Thursday, Sept. 11, from 8am until 2pm at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, DC.
It’s the third year the organization has held the drive. Muslim chapters across the U.S. during that time have held 906 blood drives and collected 33 thousand bags of blood.
This nationwide campaign is being held by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA in solemn remembrance of the lives lost 10 years ago. All 71 chapters of the community in 50 cities will host blood drives during the month of September, with the goal of collecting 10,000 bags of blood that can save as many as 30,000 lives.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is partnering with numerous community and religious groups, including the American Red Cross, America’s Blood Centers and many other Muslim and non-Muslim organizations.
