AEB Food Drive 2017

Duration:  November 15 to 13 December

As an Association, we believe that “Engaged Buddhism seeks to address the needs of the wider community through the skilful and practical application of the teachings of the Buddha”.

In addition to projects such as retreats which benefit Association members and friends, we have a number of projects where the aim is to benefit the wider community. One of these is the Food Drive, where we collect donations of food and toiletries over a period of one month and donate them to an identified charity. The charity we currently support is the Asylum Seeker Centre which operates a food store where clients of the service can obtain free dried groceries and toiletries.

Please bring your donation of packaged groceries and toiletries to Dana Days and to the Wednesday meetings where they will be received with thanks.
