Reminder: Meet a Girl Scout Muslimah Interfaith Outreach THIS SATURDAY, May 14

As a part of earning their My Promise, My Faith pin, PGMA Girl Scouts are reaching out to local Girl Scouts of other faiths. Our goal is to combat Islamophobia by educating our sister Girl Scouts about Islam and Muslims through song, informative presentations, a tea party, a tour of the impressive Diyanet Center campus, and, of course, SWAPS!

PGMA Girl Scouts should wear their full uniform (white scarf, white shirt & khaki pants or khaki jilbab) and uniform vest. Bring an extra scarf in case one of our guests forgets or does not have one. Girls should arrive at 10:30AM to set up and be prepared to leave at 2:30PM after cleaning up. No tagalongs please.

Parking & Building Location: Use the underground parking entrance opposite 100th Avenue. Once you enter underground parking, the entrance to the Guest House is the first door on the right. Take the elevator to the first floor. The program will be in the Guest House Cafeteria.

Bring $2 (exact change, please) to purchase an optional fun patch for the event.

Silver Trefoil Hours Alert: Youth Service Day, May 31

Capital Area Interfaith Friends is a youth-led interfaith youth service group whose members do service projects together and learn about each other’s faiths. This year we are hosting an area-wide youth service day on May 31 for youth of all faiths and hope you/your youth group can come! The flyer is attached.

The goal is to bring 140 middle and high school youth from different faiths together for an afternoon packing food for the hungry at Washington Hebrew Congregation in Potomac. We will pack in shifts and have time to eat together, share what service means in our faiths, talk about service projects we do as individuals or in our groups and talk about ways we can support each others’ service projects in the future.

For more information on CAIF, visit www.capitalareainterfaithfriends.org

Please RSVP as space is limited to 140 youth.
