Marking Memorial Day & End of Ramadan: M.T.O. School of Islamic Sufism Centers Around the World Honor Frontline Heroes with Global Food Drive

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

WHEN: May 25, 2020 - Memorial Day & End of Ramadan.

WHERE: M.T.O. centers in dozens of cities worldwide, including Los Angeles, Orange County, New Jersey, Sacramento, Denver, San Diego, Atlanta, Hillsborough, Dallas, Berkeley, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, Houston, Bloomington, Chicago, Milwaukee, Saint Louis, Minneapolis, Columbus and New York.

WHO/WHAT: The M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi School of Islamic Sufism marks the end of Ramadan by delivering thousands of food items and care packages to the homeless and veterans in need, VA hospitals and low-income frontline families. 

In the United States, MTO volunteers will be joined by Members of U.S. Congress, Mayors, City Counsilmembers and other dignitaries to honor attending veterans, police officers, fire fighters, sheriff deputies and COVID-19 frontline heroes.

As part of M.T.O.'s global COVID-19 Initiatives, all M.T.O. centers around the world will be conducting similar food drives on the same day, in Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand and throughout the United States.

Additionally, at 10:00 a.m. (PST), a special Instagram Live Tamarkoz® (Sufi Meditation) session will be broadcast from the M.T.O. Los Angeles center. This Instagram Live session will implement specific meditation and relaxation techniques to provide stress management and assist in reducing anxiety during this historical time. 

WHY: M.T.O. will mark the end of Ramadan - observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community - by showing appreciation to the heroes who have sacrificed to protect us every day.

"We traditionally mark the end of Ramadan by celebrating Eid Fitr, also called the 'Festival of Breaking the Fast.' In light of recent events, M.T.O. centers worldwide have chosen this day to provide hope, food and stress relief to those in need, whether related to the current pandemic or other tribulations." — Sara Bavar, L.A. M.T.O.

"While we may not be able to celebrate Eid Fitr with our families and loved ones this year, we cannot think of a better way to commemorate this wonderful occasion than continuing our global efforts in support of our local communities." — Ghoncheh Alavi, London M.T.O.
