The holiday season is a great time to come together and make this Christmas special for families in your community. A fantastic example of community coming together is the Toys for Kids campaign by the Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen and Sikh Academy Elementary, who are encouraging the Sikh community to collect and donate toys to children in need. The toys collected during this campaign will directly benefit families supported by The Salvation Army and other lower mainland charities.

“Sikhs believe in “Sarbat Da Bhala”, meaning caring for all,” says Paul Singh Hundle with Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen. “It’s important during the Christmas season, to think of those less fortunate and make their Christmas much brighter.”

Thanks to the generosity and valiant efforts of donors and volunteers, nearly 5,000 toys will be delivered to the Sikh Academy gymnasium in Surrey on December 10th.

We are grateful for the endless support our community shows to other families in need. Over the last six years, the annual Toys for Kids campaign has graciously donated over 20,000 toys and have provided thousands of families the opportunity to enjoy Christmas.

That is why this week, Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen and Sikh Academy Elementary are our heroes for hope!
