Volunteers from Under One Roof, a charity group with members from the and Upper Westchester Muslim Society of Thornwood, held a food drive last week.
The group gathered more than 250 pounds of food, worth approximately $600, at its first joint effort last weekend on behalf of local women's shelter Hope's Door and the Katonah Community Center. Approximately 10 volunteers delivered the food on Friday.
Founded in 2010, "Under One Roof is a group of Muslims and Jews who are guided by principles of tolerance, compassion and connection as we provide secular assistance and relief to the local and global community," according to its mission statement.
"Our mission is clear; come together for a better today," it reads.
Coming up, Under one Roof will host a fundraiser and dinner on October 15 to bring together the Jews and Muslims of the community.
