Collection Drive for Fire Affectees

The recent Northern California Fires have affected thousands of people, leaving entire communities without basic necessities and homes. In response to this, after cross-community meetings with other Masajids and organizations, and getting Mufti Mudassir’s input, ILM Academy has come up with a short-term plan to assist by holding an immediate collection drive.

Alhamdullillah, the ICF community/ILM Academy has held similar collection drives over the past years to help communities in need and to support worthy causes. It plans to play critical role this time too through the collection of the needed items listed below. These will be collected at ILM Academy and can either be sent through the students or dropped off by the parents.

ILM Academy hopes that parents will help their children become part of this Khair. May Allah (swt) accept this small effort from the community to support those in need. An important note is to make sure that all donated items are brand new and not used. Also, the collection drive does not include glass items, open items, perishables, or expired items.

Required Items:
Water bottles/Juice Boxes
Canned Tuna & Soup
Canned Fruits and Vegetables
Peanut Butter (small size)
Canned Beans
Granola Bars/Crackers
Cotton Towels/Pillows
