We are Ohana - Ramadan Food Drive 2020
Start: Apr 24, 2020 - End: May 23, 2020
Growing up, my grandparents worked closely with the homeless people in our community. Once a year, they would have a huge food drive. We would wake up early in the morning to prepare sandwiches to add to our lunch bags filled with fruit and water. The rest of the afternoon would be spent handing these bags out in the community.
This year, for Ramadan, I would like to continue their tradition. This holy month is supposed to be spent remembering the mercy of God and increasing our Imaan (faith). What better way than helping those less fortunate, especially during this pandemic? Our communities need our help.
My main goal is $620, enough to feed 500 people. Anything over that amount will be used to buy toiletries, mainly for the local women’s shelters. Food and toiletries will be distributed during the last 10 days of Ramadan.
Allah says “Spend on charity, O Son of Adam, and I shall spend on you” (Prophet Muhammed)
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done.” (Proverbs, 19:17)
