Faith Leaders Come Together for Interfaith Food Drive for the Ottawa Food Bank this Mother's Day WeekendWritten by Daniel Stringer
Good Samaritans invite Ottawa believers to join us in an Inter-Faith Food Drive to feed the poor and show interfaith solidarity at this time of increased intolerance. Bring some non-perishable food to your place of worship this Mother’s Day weekend as you go to pray. We are asking the place of worship to announce the food drive and deliver the food donations to the Ottawa Mosque parking lot, where volunteers will load it onto trucks for the Ottawa Food Bank.
Through the Good Samaritans Inter-Faith Food Drive, religions are working together cooperatively for the public good. Beyond the issues arising in these troubling times, this inter-faith, cooperative activity highlights the value religious believers bring to civic life, as engaged citizens committed to Rev. Martin Luther King’s “Beloved Community”, social justice and caring for the most vulnerable among us. Non-believers are also welcome to participate.
Places of Worship can deliver their food donations to our central drop-off point at the Ottawa Mosque, 251 Northwestern Avenue @ Scott St., on Friday May 12 from 3 to 7 pm, Saturday, May 13 fromNoon to 7 pm or Sunday, May 14 from 1 to 7 pm.
In partnership with the Capital Region Interfaith Council, Ottawa Muslim Association and the Women’s Federation for World Peace - Ottawa
