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!
