A man asked the Messenger of Allah [SAW]: “What quality of Islam is best?” He said: “To feed (the poor) and to greet whomever one knows and whomever one does not know.”
[Sunan-an-Nasa’I, Hadith 5003]
Our Annual Ramadan Food Project is back!
Last year, we distributed 278 packages all over the community, and over 1100 food items to 7 different food banks and shelters.
From May 12, 2017, until June 4, 2017, become a part of the Ramadan Food Packages Project.
Please bring these food items and place them on the table at the back of the cafeteria:
Canned Fruits/Canned Vegetables
OR you can donate a monetary donation of $35. Please place the donation in the envelopes provided beside the donation boxes, and label as “Ramadan Food Package” and we’ll make the package for you.
Begin the month of Ramadan by helping a family in need.
Every year Serving Humanity holds a Ramadan food package drive for local families in the GTA. These packages are delivered to families in need before Ramadan. The items included in these packages are of daily use such as oil, rice, flour, tea bags and much more.
Last year we collected 143 packages which were delivered to our local shelters and food banks. Our aim this year is to exceed that number and provide our neighbors with food for the month of Ramadan.
Project Timeline: May 5, 2016 – June 5, 2016
Please place all food items on the table at the back of the cafeteria.
Donations can be put in envelopes and labeled “Ramadan Food Packages”
Our team reported this story from one of our previous Ramadan drives.
“We met with a sister who came from far asking for food. We later found out that the sister had come from Markham. One of our volunteers sponsored a package for her, including 3 large formula packs for the sister’s toddler. A volunteer had helped us dropping the package off. On further visit we learnt of the sister’s greater needs, and we were able to help in other ways.”
Let’s raise the bar once again and put our share to help our neighbors this Ramadan.
