WeCare Canada has conducted some great projects this summer of 2017!
On June 28 we hosted our first annual ‘Ramadan Food Drive’, distributing hampers to about 350 families! We would like to thank our volunteers and staff, who have supported this initiative and made it successful! We look forward to more of these initiatives in different parts of our Calgary community.
WeCare Canada YYC sees food drives as NOT a one-time solution – hunger is a recurring issue, every day, every-year, where families lack resources. Conducting food or hamper drives engage and connect substantial amount of families and volunteers to the cause.
WeCare Canada hosted Brooks Food Drive alongside the Muslim Council of Calgary. We served almost 100 families, with over 60 volunteers to help make this possible! We distributed 6,000 Ibs of food to the families in the Brooks community. Dr. Adnan Mansoor stated in a radio interview with 105.7 FM as a Ramadan community spirit that inspired and motivated this initiative, giving back to the community. Those who received food hampers included refugees new to the community, single mothers, people below the poverty line, and some from the oil and gas sector.
