About this Event
Raindrop Foundation cordially invites you and your family to a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner which we would like to offer a drive thru meal and invite you to join zoom for a virtual gathering. We see these Ramadan gatherings as an opportunity to bring people from diverse backgrounds together, for building bridges and cultivating mutual understanding.
As you may know, Ramadan is the holiest of the 12 months in Islam during which Muslims fast. Fasting starts at dawn and ends at sunset. During this time, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking (including water) and intimacy. The fast is broken at sunset with a dinner called “iftar” where family, friends, and neighbors gather.
The Raindrop community has been sharing iftar dinners with many other communities in our city for the last several years. We received great feedback from friends who attended these dinners. We would be honored if you join us on this occasion to break bread together.
We kindly ask you to register if you are willing to attend. Please indicate in the registration if you would like to pick up Fast Breaking Meal from Raindrop. Meal pickup will be between 6:00pm-6:30pm at Raindrop’s parking lot. Food drive for SA Food Bank will also take place at the same time at the same venue.
Virtual gathering will start at 7:30 PM on zoom. A presentation on Islamic prayer, charity, and the practice of fasting during Ramadan will be shared. Everyone on zoom will be invited to break bread together at sunset. Breakout rooms during the dinner will foster small group conversations for better interaction. We look forward to meeting new friends as well as seeing our old friends after a long break .
One important aspect of Ramadan is charity and sharing. To practice this aspect, Raindrop Foundation has been organizing Food & Fund Drive during the month of Ramadan for San Antonio Food Bank.
You can bring non-perishable food items for the Food Drive during the Fast Breaking Meal distribution at 6:00-6:30pm, to the Raindrop Parking Lot.
