What happens when disaster strikes? True to Indian teachings of ahimsa, of helping others and living life with a spirit of seva (service), where charity is held as a noble deed to be done without expectation of any return from those who receive it, the Indian Cultural Association (ICA) mobilized in response to covid. ICA's philosophy is to serve our neighbors and our larger community. ICA's a rag tag team of volunteers set out to feed our hungry neighbors.  Everyday we have been fighting for struggling families in Maryland. ICA has had an impact on tens of thousands of our neighbors.
