Feedback and Comments
Even though the main goal of having a shelter was to assist the greater community in a time of need and for the pleasure of Allah (swt), the feedback and comments from our social media pages were beyond amazing! These comments encourage our volunteers and also our community to continue doing the great work that they are doing. From just this weekend, our posts and videos together have reached well over 500k views according to Facebook statistics. Here are a few screenshots of the comments received:
Red Cross and ICNA Relief Teamed Up With ICO
ICO teamed up with the American Red Cross and ICNA Relief to provide the shelter! We were able to work with the world's foremost disaster relief organization, and they only had wonderful words about us. The Red Cross even posted a video to share the good work we did during Hurricane Irma!
Local News Coverage
ICO continues to grow its positive image in Central Florida. The Orlando Sentinel not only mentioned our shelter, but pointed out that Mosques are staying open while Churches are not! Alhamdullillah, we received positive news cycles for two full days.
