MAJC Cancels Post-Ramadan Banquet

The Muslim Association off Jackson County (MAJC) has, for the past six years, had a fairly posh ‘Eid Reception for the past six years–five of those years the reception was held at Jackson Community College. 

However, this year, the MAJC Board of Trustees announced they will forego the ‘Eid Reception and “use the money that we would have spent on the reception and return it 100% to the community.  Every month we will donate 1/12th of the budgeted funds to a local area food pantry, so over the next year, we will have used these funds to help our local brethren.”

The MAJC community asks that anyone who would like to support this monthly effort, or who knows of an organization that could use this support, contact 517-784-1187.
