Earlier this month, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association made a donation of 1,400 pounds of food to the Bradford Helping Hand Food Bank.
The association has been continuously looking for ways to support the community throughout the pandemic. As the year 2020 came to an end, the women wanted to do something special to start the new year off on a positive note, something worth celebrating.
The association believes that act of giving gifts helps to promote love between people.
Together, working with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, they were able to collect and deliver 1,400 pounds of food to the Bradford Helping Hand Food Bank.
"I think that was a great start to this new year," said member of the association Aisha Tasneem. "Even though restrictions have increased and a lot of people are having a tough time, we were glad to be able to help, in whatever small way, make a positive difference for someone."
The association is hoping to inspire others in the community to give back to the food bank.
"Many of us are fortunate enough to not have to worry about groceries or next meal, so we should do our part in supporting those who are in need," said Tasneem.
The volunteers at the food bank were very appreciative of the donation.
