How we assist.
Families arrive into empty homes where they don’t have essentials like beds, clothes, hygiene products etc. We have furnished and provided items to 50 families. We have provided 185 Beds. People with these beds are no longer sleeping on the floor. 28 Couch sets delivered! It’s easy to get access to items but the real challenge is logistics. Ensuring that there’s a need, sourcing items and making sure they’re clean and safely delivering them to these families is no easy task to say the least.
We have conducted 6 Emergency Food Distributions, 35 families per distribution at a minimum, totaling 210 families. Newly arriving families don’t have access to EBT and Cash benefits for about 60 days. This means they rely on Al-Misbaah to feed themselves and their children. We conducted these emergency drives at various locations after validating the need that there’s literally no food in their homes. Emergency food has been delivered to 190 families, directly to their door.
20 Apartments, minimum of 40 families served at each complex, totaling 800 families. Since the families arriving don’t have vehicles, we load up our trucks and transport resources such as food, clothing, cooking utensils etc to these families at the complexes they’re staying at. We’ve conducted 20 individual distribution drives at different complexes throughout Sacramento and surrounding areas.
What do you do when you get a call where you’re told that my family is hungry?
You go to the Al-Misbaah warehouse and load up your vehicle with fresh and Halal food and deliver it to them immediately!
