(Miami, FL, 11/09/2016) The Council on American-Islamic Relations - Florida (CAIR-FL) has announced today that it will be co-sponsoring the Day of Dignity to bring together community volunteers, government agencies, nonprofits, businesses, service providers, and the private sector to help serve the homeless community in Palm Beach County. 
 
The event is open to all members in the community and will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the ­­­­Ezell Hester Community Center; 1901 N. Seacrest Blvd., Boynton Beach, FL 33435 . 
 
CAIR-Florida has co-hosted this event in several locations across Palm Beach over the last four years in collaboration with Islamic Relief USA, the Homeless Coalition and other organizations such as United Way and Palm Tran with dedication to human development and community building. 
 
Along with volunteerism, Day of Dignity is about community service in action; feeding, clothing, and supporting the homeless. Together with our local community partners we seek to address basic human needs of the underprivileged communities in South Florida. 
Services that  will be provided by over 40 local agencies include housing assistance, mental health services, health screening and insurance, dental care, family services, free haircuts, job placement, educational opportunities and referral services. 
 
CAIR-Florida welcomes the Media to attend and cover this event. Please see the attached flyer for more information:
