Corrie DenHoed posted On Common Ground I have 4 chairs (I'm keeping the table) that I'd love to give to a refugee family or someone who can really use them. They aren't super comfortable, but they're a place to sit for someone who doesn't have any. If anyone knows of someone who can use them, let me know!

Dear MFBCS Volunteers,
International Volunteer Day (December 5th) was designated by the United Nations over 30 years to promote volunteerism and recognizing all those who give their time, energy, and skills to make a positive change.
I wanted to let you all know that it has been an absolute pleasure working with you in 2018 and inshaAllah we will continue with our momentum into the new year. A special thank you to everyone who has helped and supported the MFBCS team.
This year’s International Volunteer Day campaign recognizes volunteers through the theme #ResilientCommunities. Thank you for always being there to take initiative for the Muslim Food Bank and Community Services Society!
I hope to see you all at the Food Distribution on Saturday Dec 8th, 2018.

At the height of the Syrian upheaval in 2013, Taha Abadi witnessed the destruction of his hometown before his eyes. Bullet holes covered the walls of schools and hospitals. The noise of the shootings silenced the streets and the falling of the bombs forced people to run for safety every few days. Life was a nightmare.
After many years of sheer struggle, things finally took a turn for the better when Taha’s application to seek asylum in Canada was accepted. When Taha first arrived in BC he wasn’t sure if he should go back to school, get some sort of certification, learn English or look for flooring work-a trade he had years of experience in. But he was sure of one thing and that was to become financially independent within one year of immigrating to Canada and be able to take care of his family.
The Muslim Food Bank & Community Services was able to help Taha navigate the Canadian job market, assist him in gaining connections and volunteer experience. In the beginning he struggled to find work and insisted that he didn’t want to go on welfare assistance. We were determined to help Taha not only secure a job but to also support him overcome the challenges that come with being a newcomer in Canada.
Six month later we were delighted to find out that Taha had secured a contract to do flooring for all sixteen storeys of an apartment building! Taha now has the confidence to not only take care of his family, but be a thriving member of his new community.
These are real stories where our volunteers impact and give hope to members of our community that need it. The most beautiful aspect is helping those in need like Taha progress in their lives.
Help us help people like Taha by contributing to our launchgood campaign today! Link below.
