Minuteman Press in Oxford Helps Two Time World Boxing Champion Amir Khan Deliver a Knockout Punch to Combat Homelessness and Support Underprivileged Children in The Gambia
OXFORD, England--Minuteman Press in Oxford recently attended a charity fundraising dinner in support of the Amir Khan Foundation, who has teamed up with Penny Appeal to raise funds to build a complex in The Gambia, West Africa, which will offer housing and support 100 orphaned children. Once built, the complex will not only offer housing but include a community center, school and clinic as well. In addition, a dedicated foster mother will live in each home, which will accommodate 10 children and allow them to live together in as natural of an environment as possible.
“Minuteman Press in Oxford was proud to support such a worthy cause by attending the fundraiser and donating £250 to the Amir Khan Foundation,” said franchise owner Amad Hassan. He continued, “It was a real honor to meet Amir Khan and present him with our donation check, and we were grateful for this opportunity to help orphaned children in The Gambia get the housing and care they deserve.”
Minuteman Press Area Manager Mark Jones added, “From the beginning, Amad Hassan has been an exemplary entrepreneur who has followed the Minuteman Press franchise system and has become a huge success story as a result. His passion for giving back to the community is something that truly makes me proud, and it is great to see him continue such charitable efforts by donating to the Amir Khan Foundation.”
