CARROLLTON — Fourteen-year-old Sarah Ibrahim had never before seen the type of destruction that Hurricane Harvey caused in Houston.

But once the Dallas youth saw it, she felt inspired do something to help.

On Sunday, she got her chance. Sarah joined hundreds of others from North Texas’ Ismaili Muslim Community who put together 100,000 meals destined for those impacted by the devastating storm.

“This is just really different because nothing like this has happened in my life,” Sarah said. “It’s good to be apart of it and be able to be an impact to families that have been in Harvey.”
Not long into her volunteer shift Sunday, her table full of friends had already packed three boxes, each with 48 meals inside.
“That’s just our main goal right now, to get as many boxes and meals done,” Sarah said.
