Drought Relief Event: May 29, 1 pm

Join volunteers at IIT to pack drought relief kits which will be shipped to Somalia! The kits will be given to families in Somalia as part of IDRF's famine relief work. They provide six months of clean, filtered water for a family and also include a hygiene pack (toothpaste, brushes, soap, etc.) and a snack pack.

Ramadhan Food Drive

The IIT Youth Council's annual Ramadhan food drive is back! Each month, over 850,000 Canadians turn to food banks for help. Food is an essential human right. Ramadhan is a perfect reminder to us all about this. Please help those who are struggling to put food on their table.

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the IIT during the month of Ramadhan. Spread the word, and invite others to this generous cause.
