MAYA Cosmetics Donates $3,500 Worth of Personal Care Products
3/26/2020, Bridgeview, IL – COVID-19 has brought life as we knew it to a stand still. It has also provided companies committed to corporate social responsibility impetus to ramp up their efforts. Bridgeview, IL, based Maya Cosmetics (www.maya-cosmetics.com) reached out to Chicago-based ICNA Relief, a local non-profit, to ask how they could help. The result is a donation valued at $3,500 comprising personal care products for families in need, including vaseline, body wash/shampoo, deodorant, mouthwash, nail clippers, tweezers, nail file, a comb, and toothbrush. Volunteers will assemble 400 kits on Friday, March 26, 2020 at Maya Cosmetics headquarters, 7633 W.100th Pl. Bridgeview, IL 60455 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The items will be delivered on Tuesday 3/31 to ICNA Relief Food Pantry 1781 Bloomingdale Rd, Glendale Heights, IL 60139
“As more and more of our neighbors lose jobs or see their businesses being impacted, the need to be our brother’s keepers is more urgent than ever before,” says Mr. Javed Younis, President, Maya Cosmetics. “At Maya Cosmetics, we do our best to incorporate these values into our day-to-day business dealings. Corporate Social Responsibility is not about distinguishing ourselves from the competition but rather just being a responsible organization that gives back to the community consistently. It’s about being human and living our Islamic faith. These are all matters we have to answer to (God) about,” he says.
“Toiletries are necessities and rarely offered by food pantries, making Maya Cosmetics’ kits even more valuable, especially in this crisis,” said Dr. Saima Azfar, Director, Islamic Circle of North America Relief ( ICNA Relief) Chicago. “We are so grateful to organizations like Maya Cosmetics. We need all the donations possible.” ICNA Relief (icnarelief.org) serves thousands at its pantries in Chicago and Glendale Heights.
