Local Zakat Distribution
RCC is collecting Zakat monies this Ramadan to be used for Zakat eligible purposes, mostly to be distributed to families in Chicago. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the wage earners in these families have become unemployed. They were employed primarily in the service and labor sectors, which have been hit hard by the ongoing quarantine and economic downturn. Further many of these families live paycheck to paycheck. Zakat funds will go towards these families to pay rent, utilities, and groceries.
All funds will be used for Zakat eligible purposes, and none will be used for overhead expenses.
Please note that RCC is not sending Zakat overseas.
