QUEENS — This is the time of year for family, friends and food, but it’s also the time of year for giving.

Members of a Muslim American charity gave over 300 people food and clothes for the holidays on Tuesday. The Islamic Circle of North America organized the food and clothing drive outside of their Queens location on 144th Street.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams helped distribute the groceries.
