In November 2007, when Bangladesh was ravaged by Sidr Cyclone that washed ashore thousands of carcasses of livestock and human beings alike, we volunteered to help bring some form of relief to those who were still alive. Members of Manassas Mosque helped collect clothes. We collected $500 that was used to buy medicine from local pharmacies. We also helped sell $100 worth of tickets to a theatrical event sponsored by the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology Alumni. The entire proceeds went directly to the affected individuals. The show, which raised $20,000, was followed by a march sponsored by ORCA (Old Rajshahi Cadet Association). The amount was then matched by Verizon.
2005: Adam Center
In 2005, we collected tents and clothing for the Great Pakistan Earthquake which impacted the Northwest Frontier province. We collected clothing from neighborhoods as well as from the members of Manassas Mosque. We also bought 30 tents, each housing 10-12 individuals. Once the goods arrived by air in Karachi, Pakistan, they were transported by train to Lahore, then by donkeys to Peshawar and the far north.
2004: Asia Relief
In December 2004, when the South-East Asia was devastated by the tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of people in Asia and Africa, we raised donations, medication and clothing for the affected families of Sri-Lanka. The employees at Inova Urgent Care Center unofficially gave their donations and emergency medical supplies, which included syringes, gauzes, alcohol preps and Tylenol. We also gathered a truck full of clothes from members of Manassas Mosque to be sent with the shipment.

In the summer of 1994, our organization volunteered its time to ACTS, which caters to victims of domestic violence and homelessness. We assisted in the administrative tasks and distributed food to the homeless.
