Solidarity and fraternity are two values that make us human. Take the initiative, along with your friends and your neighbors, and install if possible, donation boxes in your neighborhood, through which passerby’s can donate clothes and blankets that they do not need. You can place a sign indicating that that which is in the boxes is for those who need it most, and by doing so, you would have shared the rewards of those who are donating.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah has imposed upon the wealthy among Muslims to donate as much as it covers the needs of their poor, and the poor will not suffer from starvation or a lack of clothing except from what results from the actions of their wealthy. In that case, Allah will judge [the wealthy] severely, or make them go through a painful punishment.”
