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.

Eid Toy Drive Update

Our Eid Toy Drive gave us the opportunity to give gifts to children of more than forty families. With hopes of bringing happiness to children for Eid, we distributed 9 bikes and more than 200 toys as part of our Eid Toy Drive.

Words cannot express the joy on the children’s faces when they received their Eid gifts. The entire experience was so heartwarming! Thank you to an amazing community for helping us help others. Jazakumullahu Khairan!

Ramadan Food Packages Update

This Ramadan, we collected 340 food packages Alhamdulillah.

We distributed food to seven food banks, to women’s shelters and transitional homes, and to local families.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions! With your help, we were able to help people by providing food, not just in Ontario, but all over Canada.
