Dhul Hijjah Food & Backpack Update

Here’s a quick update of our Dhul Hijjah Food and Backpack Drive:

Alhamdulillah, we raised more than 2500 pounds of food, collected and distributed 145 backpacks to children in need within our community! Our donations were shared with the Arab Community Centre of Toronto, the Etobicoke Food Assistance Program, and Nisa Homes.

Jazakumullahu Khair to all the volunteers who participated in our Packing Event and helped make food packages and backpack kits! Each back-to-school kit contained a backpack, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, ruler, pens, notebook/lined paper, and more! Thank you for helping bring joy to children in need!

Thank you to an extremely generous community for your contributions!

Dhul Hijjah Food and Backpack Drive

The Prophet SAWS has said about the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days…” (Bukhari)

Our Food and Backpack Drive is aimed at earning the pleasure of Allah in these ten beautiful days by collecting and distributing food items and school supplies for people in need. Drop off all non-perishable food items and school supplies in the cafeteria at Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Rd, Mississauga, until August 19, 2018.

Let’s join this race for good deeds in the best ten days and take this opportunity to help families in need within the community!

Serving Humanity’s Ramadan Update

Through ‘Share the Blessings’, our Ramadan Food and Toy Drive collected and distributed 12,241 pounds of food within the local community. We were also able to distribute around 400 Eid gifts that brought smiles to children’s faces.

Serving Humanity would like to say Jazakumullahu Khair for the community’s generous contributions. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of those in need.  A special shout-out to all of our volunteers for helping out with the packing events in Ramadan! The sorting, weighing, making food packages, gift-wrapping toys, would not have been possible without your contribution of time and efforts. May Allah accept from all of us and enable us to continue helping others!

Share the Blessings – Ramadan Food and Toy Drive

Our Annual Ramadan project is back! This Ramadan, Share the Blessings with everyone in the community through our Food and Toy Drive. Help us feed local families by sharing non-perishable food items such as rice, sugar, flour, oil, canned fruits/vegetables and more. Participate in our toy drive by bringing new, packaged toys, and help us brighten a child’s Eid.

“The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم was the most generous of all people, and he used to be even more generous in the month of Ramadan…(Bukhari)”

All food items and toys can be dropped off at Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Road, Mississauga. There are two food bins; one at the main entrance, and one in the women’s prayer area entrance. All toys can be dropped off at reception or in the cafeteria.

*Note: We do our best to allocate and disperse Ramadan donations in the month of Ramadan. Donations that come in too late are either held for the next Ramadan or dispersed in appropriate projects as per need.

Spring Food Drive

Today is the first day of Spring! Let’s make this a time of hope and optimism for the community. Starting today until March 29, 2018, we are participating in the Mississauga Food Bank’s Spring Food Drive.

Donate non-perishable food items and drop them off to Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Rd, Mississauga. The most needed items are canned fruits, canned vegetables, and pasta sauce. Food items can be dropped off in the food bins located at the front entrance and the back of the prayer hall. 

Spread the word to friends and family and help us feed our neighbours!
