Jamshedpur, Dec. 22: City-based social organisation Har Har Mahadev Seva Sangh has embarked on a drive to distribute blankets and spread warmth among the less privileged people of the society. The drive was started with distributing among the saints. On Tuesday the drive reached Baradwari KumharPara and Bhuiyandih kalindi Bast.
“ In view of the spread of coronavirus. We are taking every step to ensure the safety of our workers and the beneficiaries. Rather than inviting people to gather for the blanket drive. We are visiting individual houses to distribute the blankets. We are also following strict Covid protocols during the drive, founding president of the association, Amarpreet Singh Kale.
The blanket distribution drive will cover the city along with the nearby villages. The idea is to provide shield to the less privileged from the winter. From the past one week the drive has been carried in different parts of the area including Mango, Sakchi, Burmamines. Rural belt like Ghatshila, Musabani, Patmada are being covered.
Founding president of the association, Amarpreet Singh Kale said that various social welfare activities are being carried out throughout the year and blanket distribution is the most sought after initiative. The purpose of distributing blankets to the needy spreads the message of sympathy, love and sacrifices to the society.
For more than a decade, city-based social organisation has been helping poor survive the cold through their blanket distribution programmes.
Sharing his experience, Kale says, “ I am of the opinion that everybody can become a Santa just by donating a blanket to the needy. I have watched the drive become more successful each year as members of the sangh open their hearts to help both the homeless and those struggling to make ends meet. This is a cause we can all get behind to make a difference for people who really need it”. The blankets also tell people that others care and place value on their lives he added.
