Event Description

This event was originally created by Madina Institute U.S.A.

Allah, Most High, has truly tested us with some cold weather this winter, but all praise to Him (swt), most of us are able to retreat to the comfort of our homes and heating to keep warm. For the thousands of homeless and displaced people in our community, this just isn't the case.

Madina Institute U.S.A is excited to be hosting a Winter Blanket Drive starting today and up to Sunday, December 7th. We will be accepting blankets (ONLY NEW) in their original packaging at our Duluth, GA facility and there are collection bins both in the women and men's lobby areas. On December 7th, the Youth Groups of the Gwinnett Islamic Circle and many from Madina will be traveling to a Feed-the-Hungry program in downtown Atlanta, where the blankets will also be distributed.

We have an ambitious target of gathering 150 blankets for distribution, and we really need your support for this! Please drop off your blankets anytime from now until December 7th! We ask Allah, Most High, to elevate you and grant you all that is good in this life in the next for your contributions and good intentions!

For more information, please contact Nasim Omar, Rizwana Khan, or Asra Ahmed
