Local Muslims mark Ramadan with donation
The Islamic Food Bank of Toledo donated $4,000 to the Toledo Seagate Food Bank on Friday, according to a statement from the food bank.
The donation, made on behalf of multiple Muslim organizations in the Toledo area, is intended to mark the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
"On the first day of our holiest month, our goal is to make it a true reflection of the human spirit in compassion and mercy by extending a hand to those in need and building bridges with others on the principles of respect and mutual understanding," the food bank said.
