(Cedar Rapids, IA, November 12, 2009) Each year, Big Brothers and Big Sisters hold an annual party for the organizations staff, volunteers, and families. Midamar Corporation is proud to be a sponsor of this event for the 6th straight year. This year, Midamar donated 250 lbs of halal turkey breast for the 600 people who attended the party.
“The value of our future is helping children that need support. The staff and volunteers at Big Brothers Big Sisters are totally dedicated to supporting children and teens in our community. This is an organization that helps to produce excellent future citizens and gives many children hope for the future”, said Bill Aossey, President of Midamar Corporation.
Midamar Corporation also supports The Henry Davis Youth Center’s July 4th Summer Picnic, Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners . At the center’s ‘Back to School’ picnic, Midamar Halal supplies over 1,200 hot dogs. Midamar also supports Islamic Youth Group programs across the nation and My Iman Montessori School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Most recently, Midamar sent halal Turkey’s to Michigan Senator Clark-Coleman’s Annual Turkey Drive for needy families in the Detroit area.
“At Midamar, we are thankful for being able to develop our company and believe in giving back to our community. Sharing food has always been a family tradition as I always remember my father and mother inviting, sharing and giving meals and food to everybody and anybody that came to our house and family store. They never turned away those who were unfortunate and in need. Giving to those in need and supporting the community is more than a family tradition, it is our Islamic responsibility especially if one has the ability! In Islam, charity is one of our 5 pillars of faith”, added Aossey.
Midamar is committed to supporting groups and agencies that contribute to the well being of the community and society.
