Generous public help Minhaj Sisters Midlands hand out up to 100 shoe box gifts this Christmas.
In November 2016 Minhaj Sisters Midlands launched its first shoe box appeal in a bid to give those who are homeless in Birmingham a gift this Christmas. And the response from the public has been fantastic as around 100 shoe boxes were collected and donated in and around Birmingham city centre on the 17th of December.
The shoe boxes were made up for males or females with hats, gloves, scarves, toiletries, chocolates and other edibles. Each shoe box was also donated with a Christmas card for the recipient.
We believe that a Shoe-box gift is a powerful reminder for the homeless people that they have not been forgotten and that they remain valued and respected members of our community.
