CHICAGO—Just in time for Saviours’ Day 2021, the Nation of Islam’s annual convention and celebration, a free coat, free food and free mask giveaway will happen at Mosque Maryam, located at 7351 South Stony Island Avenue in Chicago on Feb. 27, beginning 12 p.m. CDT.

Again leading the new coat drive is Eugene Khaan, who facilitates Muhammad’s Food Pantry, which offers free food every month at the main Nation of Islam mosque. This is the second year for efforts and 500 coats were given away last year. Brother Khaan is committed to doing good and looking to help a suffering community. The coats will be distributed via ticket. Contact Brother Khaan (312) 719-4333, or email [email protected] for details. Also please reach out if you would like to help with this effort.

“This year, in 2021, we have provided complete furniture for three families apartments for free. And last year’s coat event we provided 500 brand new coats to battered women shelters, homeless families, Chicago Public School students and others in need,” said Brother Khaan.
