Hot Boxes for the Homeless: A Success!
Hot Boxes for the Homeless was an initiative born from a very passionate and astute Eagle Scout, Zahi Hussain, who wanted to dedicate a day to prepare and distribute hot meals to Houston's homeless community downtown, with the help of the MCC.
Through a Launchgood program Zahi organized, he helped raise money to purchase delicious meals provided by Sawa Restaurant, which included Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters, Saffron Rice, Fatoosh Salad, Hummus and Pita. Everything was packed by our dedicated group of volunteers, many of whom we knew from our MERIT Food Drive Thru distributions on Sundays.
Our fearless leader, Zahi Hussain, giving our group one final pep talk before we head out.
Alhamdulillah, and by Allah's grace, we fed 250 people in our excursion downtown!! Every person who was fed was incredibly appreciative and grateful for the warm meals.
Thank you everyone who donated your time, money and effort for such a noble mission. If you've missed out on this opportunity to give back, please stay tuned for your next chance to participate!
There has never been a more pivotal time than now to cast your ballot!
The Multicultural Center strongly urges everyone to ensure you are prepared to exercise your right to vote in this critical General Election.
Below is important voter information to help you do just that.

  • Voter Resources: To register to vote, check voting status or to find out what's on the ballot in the General Elections, visit vote411.org. For all other voting information in Harris County, visit harrisvotes.com

  • Ballot By Mail: For all US voters 65 or older, voters going out-of-town during the election, or those who are sick or handicapped, please apply for Ballot by Mail NOW. You can download the application at harrisvotes.com

  • Election Workers Needed: There is a massive shortage of poll workers for this upcoming General Elections that must be filled. In the State of Texas, the minimum requirements to be eligible for appointment as an election worker/clerk are that the applicant must be a U.S citizen and a qualified voter of the county they reside in. THIS IS A PAID POSITION. In Harris County, you get paid $17/hour. You get paid for the training too. High school students 16 years of age and older may serve as election clerks in Texas elections. High School Election Clerks must attend training, are paid for their service, and receive an excused absence from school. For more information and application, here is the link: harrisvotes.com/ElectionWorkers

  • If you are in need for mail in ballots, but cannot travel to receive one for whatever reason, please contact Br. Mohammed Nasrullah at bigmomkn@yahoo.com, and he will deliver them to you personally.
