In April the members of 3 Sikh temples or Gurudwaras in Hamilton honored the harvesting element by holding a community-wide food drive. Members of Gurudwara Shaheedgarh Sahib Hamilton in Dundas, Baba Bhudhaji Gurudwara Hamilton and Dukh Nivaran Gurudwara, also known as the Ramgarhia Association Hamilton collected 934 pounds of food during the month. Their goal was to surpass what they raised last fall, which they did easily. They held 3 food drives last year and successfully collected 2, 227 pounds of food collectively from all those three Food Drives.

"This is the best thing ever. I'm going to look after these really well," the homeless man named Mark told Mark and his partner trek for nearly 5 km every Sunday to make to this charity event organized by the Sikh families. In this world full of political turmoil, religious discord and a plethora of other problems, these kinds of acts and gestures remind us that humanity and togetherness are still alive. They motivate us to rise above the hatred and spread smiles and love.
