The Turkey’s were collected from Midamar distributors in the Detroit area and donated to families by the Senator and her staff.
“We worked with Arab American and Chaldean Council (ACC) and the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS), to identify the underprivileged Muslim families in the Dearborn area.

This year the figure reached 160 families”, said Tareq Baydoun, Community Representative, Michigan Senator Irma Clark-Coleman.
