5th Annual Coat Drive

Imagine experiencing the harsh winter without any protection. For some families, buying winter wear can be extremely tough and unaffordable. Every one of us deserves to have a warm coat for the winter.

Serving Humanity is partnering with IDRF for “Spread the Warmth”, our 5th Annual Coat Drive. We are collecting brand new coats and winter accessories such as gloves, mittens, scarves and hats. These items will be delivered to people in need in the community.

Head to the department store to help provide someone the gift of warmth! You can also donate online at www.idrf.com/alhuda and we will purchase coats on your behalf.

“Never will you attain the righteousness until you spend [in the way of Allah] from that which you love. And whatever you spend – indeed, Allah is Knowing of it. [Surah Aali Imran, Ayah 92]

Together, let’s help keep our neighbours warm this winter.

All coats and accessories can be dropped off at reception or placed on the black table in the cafeteria at Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Road, Mississauga.

3rd Annual Serving Humanity Coat Drive Results!

This November, Al Huda Institute’s staff and students committed to making this winter safer and warmer for hundreds of our fellow neighbors in Toronto.  By the Mercy of God we were able to collect and donate 765 coats this year.  That’s a 575% increase from last year!

Congratulations to the Al Huda staff and students on this amazing accomplishment.  May you be rewarded for all your contributions and support.

We distributed the coats to the following agencies:

  1. Nisa Homes

  2. National Zakat Foundation

  3. Homes First

  4. Muslim Welfare Centre

  5. Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter

  6. New Circles

  7. Michael’s Hospital Rotary Transition Centre

  8. Etobicoke Food Bank

  9. Interval House of Hamilton

  10. Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto

Pictures below of our 30 day journey in collecting, sorting, logging and distributing the coats.  All of this could not be possible except with the help of dedicated volunteers.

Did you know? 

Nearly 1.2 million Canadian kids don’t have a good winter coat, and Toronto children are the poorest in the nation. And that’s not counting all the parents, who are even more likely to go cold, as they will often  give to their children, before themselves.

Toronto alone has over five thousand homeless individuals. While most reside in shelters, hundreds live on the street, their lives continuously threatened by our frigid winters with freezing temperatures on more than 100 days from October to April.

Let’s help.
