Hope and Prayer in the 6ix
Helps Us Tackle Poverty & Homelessness in Toronto
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu (Peace, Mercy and blessings be with you)
As summer comes to an end and school begins, there are many across our communities—often right in our backyard— in the GTA and beyond who are facing hardships. Whether it is an inadequate shelter, homelessness, unemployment, newcomer and settlement challenges, or struggles in mental health or disabilities – there are various challenges that thousands of Torontonians face each day. They suffer the crippling consequences of unfulfilled basic needs.
We invite you to help bring hope in alleviating these issues in our city. MAC Give is partnering with the City of Toronto to raise funds to support anti-poverty initiatives across the city.
On September 20th, 2019, thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims will gather together in Nathan Phillips Square to offer Hope & Prayer in the 6ix. This is an open community event where local leaders and community members of all faith backgrounds will join together to tackle #UNIGNORABLE issues like poverty in Toronto. MAC Give is an initiative premised on the philosophy of activating, engaging and nurturing a meaningful relationship with the communities that surround us. MAC is strongly committed towards community engagement and growth.
Ways you can help us bring Hope:
- Join us to create awareness and show support on Friday, September, 20th from 12-1:30pm
- Donate to the campaign and help alleviate poverty and homelessness in the region
- Bring a friend – everyone is invited!
