Dhul Hijjah Food & Backpack Drive

Dhul Hijjah Food & Backpack Drive 2019

Starting in the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, our Food & Backpack drive is aimed at helping those in need within the community in this sacred month. The Prophet SAWS has said about the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days…” (Bukhari)

Donate today to help build a backpack filled with school supplies and/or a food package. You can drop off cash or in-kind donations at Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Road, Mississauga. Join us for our packing event on Friday, August 24, at 2:00 pm, click here to sign-up!
