As the month of Ramadan ends, Muslim families start preparing for Eid (Muslim festival). Many families celebrate Eid by wearing new clothes and exchanging gifts.
This Ramadan we asked our community to share their blessings with others. For the first time we wanted people to give brand new clothes and toys to families. These families are not able to afford new clothing and toys for their children.
Our Toy Drive campaign ran for one week. The response from our community was overwhelming. We collected over 770 items for local families.
Organisations we donated to:
1. Muslim Food Assistance Programme
2. Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter
3. Muslim Welfare Centre
The list of items and pictures of the donations made can be seen below:
