Regina Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at members are donating hundreds of kilograms of food to the Regina Food Bank today as a thank-you for their new place of worship.
While the group has donated to the food bank in previous years, this year’s offering is a special expression of gratitude for support the community received in building Saskatchewan’s first purpose-built mosque.
“After the construction of our brand new mosque, we established a promise to ourselves that we are here for the long run now. Every step of the way, especially in Regina, we will be supporting the community in any way possible,” said Imam Zeeshan Ahmed.
The donation comes at an important time, said Regina Food Bank CEO Steve Compton.
