WAYS TO HELP

Islamic Oasis Center from the start was supported and started by volunteers who truly believed in our mission and helping others for the sake of Allah. We have many different volunteer opportunities from working with youth, to helping adults learn different life skills.

 

“Wasting time is worse than death, because death separates you from this world whereas wasting time separates you from Allah”

– Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim

 

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • After School Tutor: We have an after school program in Rogers Park. Our after school program runs from Monday – Thursday 4 pm – 7 pm. We provide an alternative after-school program that will facilitate and promote education, empowerment, self-esteem, and spirituality for youth. If you have a knack for teaching kids and youth in the areas of math, science and literacy then come stop by Islamic Oasis and volunteer your time to work with refugee youth/ low-income individuals. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering you can contact us at info@islamicoasis.org, make sure for the subject for the email to write After School Volunteer
  • Food Distribution: First Saturday of every month Islamic Oasis conducts a food distribution to the most needy population in our community. Volunteers are more than welcome to come the Friday  before the day of distribution to help us bag the food for our clients the next day or they can volunteer on the day of distribution (from 10 am – 2 pm).  If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering you can contact us at info@islamicoasis.org, make sure for the subject for the email to write:  Food Distribution Volunteer
  • Ramadan Iftar: During the blessed month of Ramadan we are always in need of volunteers. We need help from picking up Iftars to delivering them to the inner city and Oasis center. What better way to receive blessings in this holy month of Ramadan. Another thing that is needed is for volunteers to distribute our Ramadan cards at their local Masjid after Jummah or Tarweeh. We also need help serving food during Iftars at the Center and from cleaning up after Iftars. If you are interested in doing something that will help the most needy population in the Chicago land area please make sure to volunteer your time. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering you can contact us at info@islamicoasis.org , make sure for the subject for the email to write:  Ramadan Iftar Volunteer
  • Sorting Clothes: Alhamdulillah we have had a lot of people donate new to gently used clothes to Islamic Oasis that is distributed to new refugee families that come to Chicago. We are looking for a group of volunteers that can come and help us sort through the clothes and categorize them by gender and age groups. If any group would like to come together and can dedicate 2-3 hrs this would truly help the process be faster when we have new families come to the center. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering you can contact us at info@islamicoasis.org, make sure for the subject for the email to write : Sorting Clothes Volunteer.
