International Day of Service
Zoroastrians Stepping Forward (ZSF), a NextGenNow (NGN) initiative, is an international day of service that will be led by local chapters on May 5th, 2012. Associations are encouraged to organize a day of fun and host a shoe drive to support local charities. This event will help raise awareness about the importance of shoes in enhancing the physical, mental and emotional lives of disadvantaged individuals. Furthermore, it is an opportunity for the Zoroastrian community to gather and celebrate philanthropy and health.
We are inviting every center, as well as remote populations, to join in on this inaugural event. Together we can foster unity within our community both locally and globally.
