We partnered up with Nevada’s Mercy & Care and Embrace Relief to distribute meat packages for the people in need in Las Vegas.
Eid al Adha is a time of helping others and co-operation, Silver Sage Foundation strives to make our community a better place by being a force of charity and help. So that’s the perfect time for us to do whatever we can for people who are in need around us.
We would like to thank all our donors, Mercy & Care and Embrace Relief for this great effort.

Our volunteers participated in the Ponderosa Planting event held at Mount Charleston and organized by Southern Nevada Conservancy. The families came together and enriched their Saturday by planting trees and enjoying the fresh mountain air.
Silver Sage Foundation volunteers planted a total of 62 saplings. Our volunteers had to work hard digging the ground with shovels and plant the saplings by themselves. It was a fantastic opportunity to teach our kids how to support our beautiful nature as they were involved in the whole process. Especially after a long season of wildfires, this kind of restoration efforts are vital.
We would like to thank Southern Nevada Conservancy for allowing us to be a part of this meaningful event. Their organization and guidance was perfect and it allowed us to plant our saplings efficiently. And a special thanks to our volunteer families who took time from their weekend holidays and participated in such a physically demanding event.
Silver Sage Foundation volunteers spent their Saturday afternoon in Warm Springs Natural Area to help with the tree planting efforts. Despite a very warm day without any clouds to cover the hot sun, the volunteers planted trees happily and enthusiastically.
We believe that every individual has an obligation to preserve nature as much as they can. Especially under the shadows of a looming climate crisis, we must do whatever we can do minimize our impact on the environment. In this light, our volunteers and a dozens of other nature-friends joined to the tree planting efforts.
This Green Up event organized by the Southern Nevada Water Authority was also a great opportunity to teach our kids how to respect nature. They learnt how to plant trees under the supervision of Warm Springs Natural Area officers.
We would like to thank our great volunteers for working hard for a noble cause and the Southern Nevada Water Authority for organizing such a crucial event. Follow our social media channels to have a chance to join such future events.

Muslims are supposed to help others during the eid al-Adha as much as they can. It usually happens through sharing the meats of the sacrificed animals during the 4-day celebrations. This year, Silver Sage Foundation came together with Embrace Relief to donate meats to Nevada Mercy & Care.
Nevada Mercy & Care is a charity organization which provides medical and mental health services for the people in need. Our donations will be distributed to the refugees who desperately require support.
We would like to thank Nevada Mercy & Care, Embrace Relief, our donors, and especially our volunteers who spared from their eid time to make this charity operation a reality.

Masjid As-Sabur hadn’t organize any big iftar dinners in this Ramadan due to the pandemic measures. But just for the Night of Power, (Laylat-u-qadr), which is the holiest day of Ramadan month, the masjid made an exception and held an iftar dinner.
As Silver Sage Foundation, we collaborated with other volunteers to bring meals to the event. It was a beautiful night of friendship and spirituality. There were dozens of Muslims coming from all around Las Vegas. After the bountiful iftar dinner, we joined together to perform the Tarawih prayer.
We would like to thank Imam Fateen Seifullah for being a great host and organizing this heartful event. Also special thanks to our volunteers who prepared finger licking meals as always.

Silver Sage Foundation distributed iftar meals around 130 people at Masjid Al-Noor. It was a beautiful event of friendship and faith as Las Vegas Muslims gathered together to break their fast and share the Ramadan spirit. It was especially a refreshing moment for the participants as the pandemic has been preventing such gatherings for a long time. We paid utmost attention to follow the social distancing regulations, but there were heartfelt discussions and friendly exchanges during the evening nevertheless.
We would like to thank Masjid Al-Noor and Islamic Information Center for allowing us to organize this event. We thank everyone who came to eat with us and brought joy to the event. Finally, a special thanks must be given to our volunteers who prepared the meals in their homes. They were quite delicious!

We organized a bake sale fundraiser to raise money to be used in helping the oppressed women in Turkey. To celebrate the International Women’s Day, Silver Sage Foundation’s distinguished members prepared a variety of delicious meals.
Our stand was opened at Anthem Hills Park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Our volunteers and customers paid great attention to social distancing regulations.
All money will be sent to Turkey and it will be distributed to the women in need as the Turkish government keeps 1000s of people in jail or purged from their job, leaving them in desperate need for financial support.

Silver Sage Foundation’s Teen Project Unit collected clothes to be donated to Hannah’s Closet, a donation drop off and distribution location ran by Fostering Hope which is a ministry of Hope Church in Las Vegas. Fostering Hope supports foster families in various ways. Fostering Hope supports foster children from age 0 to 18, and they also have special programs helping them beyond age of 18 until 21 with the ‘Step Up’ system.
Our volunteer Teen Project youth has been gathering donations from the locals of Las Vegas. And they dropped them off at Hannah’s closet on Tuesday, 19th of January so that those clothes could be distributed to the foster care families. With the initiative named, ‘Coat Drive’ our hard-working teens collected scarves, gloves, boots, coats and hats. We sincerely hope that these clothes will make the cold winter season easier for the foster children.
We applaud our Teen Project volunteers and generous donors for this kind act. And we also give a special thanks to Fostering Hope, especially Donna White who answered our questions patiently and sincerely. For more information on how to help foster children, please visit: https://www.fosteringhopelv.com/
Donna White (Manager of Hannah’s Closet and Care Community Director) answered our question on the Foster Care system such as how many foster children are in Las Vegas, how can we interact with them or support them and what happens when they turn 18.
Silver Sage Foundation’s Teen Project Unit did not stay idle during the holidays and kept working hard on humanitarian efforts. Several teenagers from our high school members prepared home-made noodles and delivered them to Las Vegas and Henderson residents’ doors. In return, they collected donations for the Yemeni people who are fighting against starvation.
The donations were made through Embrace Relief’s ‘Donate for Food Distribution in Yemen’ initiative. The dire situation in Yemen calls for urgent support from all around the world as people are struggling to find food and shelter in the civil-war ridden country.
