On the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania, Muslim Americans for Compassion spent the day honoring our community’s first responders. MAC representatives joined Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear at a special remembrance ceremony. Also, several volunteers delivered more than 800 lunches to police stations, fire stations, and hospitals throughout the city.

MAC Honors First Responders

The 9/11 lunch delivery is an annual tradition for MAC – an activity which demonstrates the sacredness of all human life regardless of creed, culture, race, gender, sexuality and all other circumstances.

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.

Special thanks to Sohail Zuberi, owner of Subway restaurant in Holiday Manor, and his team for preparing more than 800 lunches for this year’s effort. And, of course, thanks to our first responders who risk their lives every day to ensure our safety.
