Community Service Award
Posted on 06/21/2020
Abdullah Nasir, the  township’s 18th annual Community Service Award recipient, has volunteered  for numerous local charities, both through Centerville High School service organizations and Muslim Youth Outreach.

Abdullah has contributed his time to five separate CHS service clubs, including Octagon Club, National Honor Society, Key Club, Interact Club and Students Against Drunk Driving. As class secretary, he helped coordinate last year’s Spirit Chain project that raised $72,500 for local charities -- a new school record. He also has taught science to elementary students through Chem Buddies, mentored freshmen through Elk Connectors, and tutored middle school students through Study Buddies.

A founding member of Muslim Youth Outreach when he was in eighth grade, he has worked with other Muslim youth to assist the Dayton Food Bank, House of Bread, Hannah’s Treasure Chest, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Leonard, Five Rivers MetroParks and Catholic Social Services. The group also meets weekly at the mosque to writes cards for veterans.

Of his many volunteer activities, Abdullah's favorite is a weekly visit to the home of local Tanzanian refugees where he tutors several young people and joins them in games of soccer.
