Muslim Community of St. Louis (MCSL)

As Muslims and good citizens we have the obligation of actively participating in social and community services. While some Muslim organizations, such as the chapter of CAIR in Saint Louis have organized community services, e.g., highway cleanup, volunteering for phone coverage for PBS/Channel 9 fundraising, and providing legal advise, however, for the most part Muslims have been invisible in social work in the Greater Saint Louis.
Our group (MCSL) was formed with the intention of doing several community service projects through out the year, on a yearly basis. We have been doing our modest projects for the past three years. We hope that by growing awareness more people of our Muslim Community will actively participate, as a faith group, in different community services. We also like to set an example for our children to show them the importance of giving back to the society at large and hope that they would continue, expand and excel in our goals.
