On November 23, 2004 Times County Newspaper reported, "at the second meeting of Project Hope and Harmony Thursday, a group formed recently to assist day laborers in Herndon, a Reston Interfaith representative announced that the group had $400 allocated to provide winter coats for the laborers. Mukit Hossain and the Muslim charity group Foundation for and Appropriate and Immediate Temporary Help (FAITH) thought this was not sufficient. They began contacting Muslim businesses and charitable organizations and by Saturday morning had more than $10,000 in pledges to buy winter coats and food for the day laborers; 15 people volunteered to distribute coats Saturday morning."
