Hurricane Victims in Urgent Need of Relief
Dear Members of the Community, As you know Hurricane Katrina has caused the worst destruction ever in the history of United States. Most of New Orleans is underwater and numerous other cities in the neighboring states have been completely wiped out. On this sad occasion, as Pakistani Americans we find ourselves in a rare situation where our own people are in desperate need of help. This is an opportunity for us to give back to our own country and do our fair share by serving shoulder to shoulder with other fellow Americans. This is what God and Islam teaches us to do, and this is the right thing do to.
In this hour of dire need, PCS is doing everything to respond to the needs of our fellow Americans who need help.
This is your own non-profit service organization where we come together and support our countrymen and show that we love and care for this country as much as any other American.
Please join us as volunteers and/or donate generously to the emergency fund we have created so we can deliver much needed aid to those in need of assistance. Let us win the hearts and minds of fellow Americans and show them that our values are not much different than theirs.
