Thank you so much to the sisters and brothers and children who have already come to pack food and those who have volunteered. May Allah (SWT) accept and reward your efforts. Ameen.
To speak now of our fundraising efforts to pay for the food we are packing. We have raised close to $1,000 of our $2,000 goal. This is an opportunity for us to contribute locally to an effort that is providing relief for children in need in over 70 countries, and from an Islamic perspective we should remember the example of generosity and compassion shown by our Prophet (SAW). We may also do well to reflect on how we wish to be seen in the greater community, as the organizers of the event will certainly notice, so please consider donating on behalf of our community.
