Winter Essential Drive

Every year we team up with Muslim Sisters of Staten Island to collect and distribute essential wintry items to the poor and needy. This year is no different. Please support us by donating items to keep them warm and clean. New items such as: Gloves, hats, scarves, socks, toothbrushes, soap, shaving essentials, sanitary napkins, lotions, etc. It doesn’t have to be travel size. It can be regular size.
BarakAllahu Feekum.



We want to thank you so very much, BarakAllahu Feekum. This was our most successful drive over the last few years. It was so successful, we needed to end a week early. May Allah azzawajjal make this heavy on your scales and a means for you to enter firdows al ala.

Can you imagine your child in a world where they couldn't live in their imagination? We cant, because we are SO fortunate to have a place where they can go to read and live in books. This project is very special because it didn't come from a grown up - it came from an 8 year old right here at Madinah. Please donate generously! 
As the cold creeps up, let us keep in mind that there are unfortunate situations where people don't have the essential things to stay warm. Please, Please donate to keep someone warm today! 
Deadline: Friday December 20th, 2019

All donations was packed and sent to the Bahamas. 
As we finish up our community service projects this year, this one means the most to us since it falls in our beloved month of Ramadan. Please donate so that our neighbors also have food at the end of these long days. Don't forget that each hasanat counts SO MUCH MORE in these days. Donate today please! Donations will be sent to MCC, Brooklyn to be distributed, in sha Allah!
Deadline May 24th, 2019
We thank you tremendously for donating to those who really needed the help during the government shut down. May Allah always keep our stomachs filled and our hearts big. Ameen!
Thank you for your contributions! They were donated and MUCH appreciated by the young patients.
Winter has already dawned upon us and as we know, it is necessary for us to cover up. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have these gears, so as part of our annual contribution to the needy of NYC - We are commencing our collection of winter gear for the women, men and children of NYC - not limited to the homeless. This project is in collaboration with Muslim Sisters of Staten Island. 
Start Date: November 25th, 2018
