Join RIS and give back to the community by supporting the various community initiatives. Some of the initiatives in the past are listed below:
Daily Bread Food Bank Drive
The ultimate goal of the Daily Bread Food bank is to, “end hunger in our communities.” For the past six years, YOUR contributions at the convention have raised over 10,000 pounds for the Daily Bread Food Bank. Let’s revive the tradition of feeding the needy! In support of the Daily Bread Food Bank, join us and bring at least one non-perishable food item to the convention. Together, we can end hunger in our community.
Poverty continues to be a reality for many families in our community, and many times difficult decisions amongst competing priorities must be made. Join RIS and the Muslim Welfare Centre in making their lives a little bit easier by bringing a new or gently used winter coat to the convention. Now in its fifth year, the RIS coat drive has donated over 2000 coats for the needy in Toronto.
For children living in poverty, the excitement of receiving a brand new toy is not always experienced. Join the RIS Toy Drive, a new initiative that will bring toys to needy children in our community.
Feed the Hunger Campaign
RIS’ Hunger Campaign has successfully been held for four years. With your participation and commitment, over 30,000 meals have been served to the needy worldwide since we began the campaign in 2009.
