Crombie Lauds Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Donations to Mayor’s Food Drive
On behalf of everyone involved in the 2017 Mayor’s City-Wide Food Drive, we want to acknowledge the compassionate members of Mississauga’s Ahmadiyya Muslim community who raised an incredible $10,000 and 25,000 pounds to support The Mississauga Food Bank’s ongoing work to help hungry neighbours in need, Mayor Bonnie Crombie said.
Representatives of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community said “The entire Ahmadiyya Muslim community came together this Thanksgiving season to once again take part in the Mayor’s 2017 City-Wide Food Drive. We are so fortunate to call Mississauga home and we all have a responsibility to support our hungry neighbours in need.”
Mayor Crombie would like to extend an invitation to you to join us at the 2017 Mayor’s Citywide Food Drive campaign wrap and results announcement on Wednesday, October 18th at 4:00 PM.
