Coronavirus and the resulting economic fallout has caused some families in Orange County financial and food insecurities. However, organizations like the Islamic Circle of North America, or ICNA are working diligently to provide families with the resources they need. “ICNA” is a Muslim nonprofit charity working to help families in places such as Orange County by offering food and other services.

The organization’s mission statement is to “alleviate human suffering by providing a caring and compassionate service to victims of adversities and survivors of disasters.” Also, some of their stated goals are, “to assist and empower underprivileged Americans through sustainable social service programs.” Some of the programs they offer are Back2school, hunger prevention, disaster relief, and health services. One of the more prevalent programs is food distribution, as the system of food pantries have been operating for a while now. ICNA distributes food while building relationships with many cities in Orange County. Ever since the pandemic started, organizations like these have adjusted; ICNA offers contactless doorstep deliveries which can be made by calling their regional offices. If you want to help or get involved with ICNA then you can visit their website. Donations are accepted and you can sign up to volunteer for any of the various programs they provide.

The ICNA offers many services to the citizens of not only Orange County but in many other places across America. With the pandemic, we need to organize and help each other during these difficult times. ICNA is one of the hundreds of organizations whose mission is to supply their communities with the relief they need.
