The Pre-Holiday Food Drive Was a Great Success!

“Just as a candle’s purpose is to provide light, the human soul was created to give generously. We fulfil our highest purpose in a life of service, in which we offer our time, energy, knowledge, and financial resources.”

Bahá’í teachings on a life of generous giving

Food scarcity is a serious problem across the country, and around the world, and the various food networks are doing their best to provide for those who are either unemployed or seriously underemployed during this Covid-19 pandemic.

Earlier this December, the Bahá’ís of Aurora sought to engage as many folks as possible in its latest project. Volunteers coordinated the collection of non-perishable foods from donors across the Aurora region and dropped them off at the Aurora Food Pantry on Saturday, December 12th, in time for the holidays.

To involve the very young in this worthwhile service, the brown bags were painted by the Children’s groups before they were distributed to friends and neighbours.
