The Zakat Foundation 99 Orphans team had their first fundraiser of 2021 on Friday, January 22nd. Many generous families paid to reserve a home cooked dinner provided by our outstanding cooks at ZF. Families then stopped by the ZF NC Community Center, where volunteers lined up outside to hand the warm meals to each car. The menu consisted of various dishes, some including tuna, kheer and chicken corn soup. Each meal from the fundraiser received a variety of praise from every family. One individual stated “I thought the food was from a restaurant, Subhanallah it was really delicious and flavourful.”
All donations from this fundraising event went directly to the orphans through the Zakat Foundation of America. For the past 8 years, Zakat Foundation has annually sponsored the education, shelter and food for over 99 orphans through money from many kind-hearted donors.
Through this fundraiser, we were able to raise $4,500 and sponsor a total of 7 orphans. May Allah reward all the generous people who purchased a meal from this fundraiser, and may Allah reward all of the hardworking cooks who put their time and effort into making this event possible!
