Rashbehari Avenue Clothes Drive

On 4th of January 2015, we executed our second project which forms part of our clothes drive initiative. We distributed winter apparels among 80 under-privileged kids along the pavements of Rashbehari Avenue. For this project specifically, we collected used clothes from our locality for this project and the response was quite overwhelming. After collection, the process of sorting those clothes began. Thanks to the efforts of our members we were able to sort the clothes effectively. Also, the last minute donation of 18 jackets from Mr. Diganta Bhowmick, an employee of Howrah Municipal Corporation caught us by surprise. In this regard, we must say that since our 2nd project Mr. Bhowmick has been constantly associated with us and enquires about our progress on a daily basis. Proud to have gained a supporter (we wish more would join us). Overall this project was not only a success but there was an emotional flair to it. Each and every core member worked hard for this project and finally to see the smiles on the faces of those beautiful kids was an enriching experience. Just a thought: “Smiles can’t be bought, not even with a zillion rupees. For, these smiles are even more valuable than the elixir found in heaven.”
