On September 11, 2021, representatives and volunteers from Muslim Americans for Compassion delivered box lunches to Louisville-area firefighters, police officers, and other first responders in commemoration of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. This anniversary is difficult for our first responders as we all know that thousands perished on that horrible day.

Honoring Our First Responders on 9/11

Several volunteers took a moment out of the busy day to share their thoughts on why it’s important to honor our first responders. Watch the playlist below.

The annual box lunch delivery is a demonstration of peace, compassion and healing. Let us continue to work together to help the human condition thrive. Peace be to all regardless of creed, culture, race, gender, sexuality, and all other circumstances.

Special thanks to Sohail Zuberi, owner of Subway restaurant in Holiday Manor, and his team for preparing nearly 1,000 lunches for this year’s effort. And, of course, thanks to our first responders to risk their lives every day to ensure our safety.
