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.

Ramadan 2017 Food Packages

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.

Please bring these food items and place them on the table at the back of the cafeteria:

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.

4th Annual Local Ramadan Packages!

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.
