The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation is non-denominational, multi-cultural, and offers charitable assistance to the general public in matters relating to obtaining, maintaining, and generally improving the social, economic, familial and educational conditions of those we serve. We have provided essential services to many inter-faith based organizations with the aim of bettering the condition of the less fortunate.
In that spirit of outreach, we have supplied many Muslim inter-faith based businesses and organizations with staples that were inturn distributed to the public with the aid of radio broadcast.

People came from miles around and were treated with as much food and flowers as they could pack, including the staff at Pacifica Radio Corporate and KPFA. This event was sponsored by Masjid al-Islam– The Oakland Islamic Center-, Masjidul Waritheen– , Jama’atus Salaam– , Go Wireless, Emad’s Tune Up, and The Justice For Ali Campaign– all of Oakland.
KPFA’s employees now want to do this donation on a weekly basis after the overwhelming back-to-back-to back successes of the previous public food give-aways that had people calling and coming from as far away as Santa Barbara and north/east to Oregon and Nevada! There are no words to express the sincere gratitude and “Thanks” conveyed on the part of the public and the employees and staff at Pacifica Radio and KPFA. JOB WELL DONE!!! The June 25, 2009 event was sponsored by Masjid Tasbeeh, The Muslim Community Center, Jama’atus Salaam, Go Wireless, Emad’s Tune Up, and The Justice For Ali Campaign.
These type of promotions are impossible without their involvement in these efforts. This is incredible outreach with invaluable goodwill established!! On several occassions it has pointed out to many people at Pacifica/KPFA, a young man standing next to Snoop Dogg in a framed picture proudly displayed on the main wall outside their main conference room, from a Tookie Williams rally held in November 2005. That young man is Imam Abu Qadir al-Amin. They were even more humbled when they acknowledged that he and the Muslim Community Center was one of the sponsors for this event.
