Transportation Options and Resources
The Muslim Advisory Council (MAC), is looking for transportation options for diverse communities. In February AMSS hosted an informative transportation meeting with Shawn Brennan, the Transportation and Mobility expert, with Aging and Disability Services and Sherri Mohebbi, the Outreach Director, with Regency Taxi. Many transportation options were explored, including, innovative model projects to be considered.

Halal Meals on Wheels New Partnerships
A new benefit was added this year to the Halal Meals on Wheels Pilot thanks to the generosity of our collaborative partner, the Islamic Center of Maryland (ICM). AMSS will be receiving monthly, 30 boxes of dried food to be collected and packaged by ICM’s teams of young volunteer students. AMSS Outreach Health and Long-Term Care Ambassadors are delighted to deliver them to our older members and their caregivers. The new boxes of food
will complement their hot meals.
