Soctober – Essential Items Donation Drive


In collaboration with Tarbiyah Academy , a companion Islamic school in the area, is partnering up with Ansaar-ul-Birr Community Services (ABCs) to collect ESSENTIAL items such as socks, nail clippers, toothbrushes, tooth paste, combs, brushes and feminine products to be given to local homeless shelters in the area. Please drop off NEW items only to Tarbiyah Academy, 6785 Business Pkwy, Elkridge, MD 21075

Note: If you’re planning to drop off used items instead of trashing them, please do not do so. Consider recycling items you don’t need instead. For clothing, electronics, books, paint, batteries, etc. that you do not want, use this website as a reference for appropriate locations:
We love for each other what we love for ourselves. Let’s avoid giving to others what we do not want for ourselves. We appreciate you discouraging others from doing this as well.
Jazaakum Allahu Khayran!
