The As-Sabeel Academy Student Council’s Backpack Buddies Food Drive was a huge success. With the goal of collected at least three items per student, students were encouraged to bring in their donations from November 5th – 16th. To encourage participation, each class that met the goal was given free movie time. Alhamdulillah, every class met or exceeded the goal!
On Monday, November 19th, Student Council members and eighth grade students sorted and organized the food. The items will be donated to families in our community, the ISG food pantry, and Greenville Tech’s food pantry. We are excited to see our school community work together for this noble cause.
“And they give food, out of love for Him, to the poor and the orphan and the captive, [saying] ‘We feed you, for Allah’s pleasure only — We desire from you neither reward nor thanks. Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful day.'” –Surat Al-Insaan
