NORMAN — The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations kicked off a new campaign this weekend to encourage Oklahoma Muslims to take part in activities that will enhance the quality of life for fellow Oklahomans.

The Oklahoma Muslims Care campaign is a program designed to facilitate volunteer opportunities for Oklahoma Muslims to partake in that will show their pride in their state through giving back to individuals and communities in need.

On Saturday, more than 100 Oklahoma Muslims volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

CAIR Oklahoma will continue to facilitate service opportunities as a part of the Oklahoma Muslims Care campaign and will host a school supply drive for Moore tornado victims in August and a volunteer day with Habitat for Humanity in September.
