Muslim Food Drives -- Faith in Action!

Salaam 'Alaikum

I'm sure this had nothing to do with our recent post, but I thought it would be inspiring to those who are thinking about it.

Muslim Feast Boasts Food Bank: Over Two Tons of Beef Donated You may have to register to see this, but it is free.

Toronto Muslims.com is the site that organized the collection. If you go to the sacrifice page, there is info on how they collected it and a FAQ about the event.

Also, the Islamic Multi Service Organization in Boston hosts a monthly food drive. If you live in the Boston area and want to get your school, workplace, or organization involved, e-mail them for more info (or post in the comments area, so I can find out about people in Boston doing these things).

Masha'allah! Two tons of beef! That's wonderful. I love seeing faith in action. We recently had a winter clothing drive at the masjid and within a week, the kitchen area was filled with piles of jackets and coats. I would be great to see more Muslims competing in terms of charity.

Please don't forget about MSA's Ramadan Fastathon (www.fastathon.org). It's a big annual event across the US and Canada and raises hundreds of thousands of dollars. This year it was big enough to raise the ire of Daniel Pipes, so they must be doing something right.
