Spring is here and it’s time again for our Annual Family Fun Day!

But this year we’re doing things differently – we’re not only coming together as a community to embrace our ties of family and friendship, but we’re also fighting hunger in our community.

Join us at Huset Park or FREE Food and BBQ. There will also be games, bouncy castles, children’s activities and much more! Please see the flier below for details.

At the event, we’ll also be collecting food as part of our food drive to help those in need in our community. Please bring a non-perishable item to donate inshaAllah.

Family, Friends, Food and You – Have Fun while also making a difference!

(And remember you don’t have to wait until the Fun Day to share the blessings. Our Food Drive is ongoing now and we have food bins at various locations. You can also donate funds online at our website www.thebuildingblocks.org).
