A group of youngsters from different areas in the city gathered to distribute blankets to the needy and homeless street dwellers. Money for the drive was raised collectively through volunteers . About 100 blankets were distributed across the twin cities. Hundred volunteers took time out from their busy schedule and participated in the drive.
Blankets were given near flyovers , temples , footpaths and railway stations. The drive which started in the evening continued till late in the night. Volunteers did a great job in looking out for genuine old people on the streets in need of a blanket. It was indeed sad to see many people without any proper clothing to cover themselves from the bitting cold outside. On receiving blankets we were blessed by the old and the needy.
This winter we at IYF request each and every one to support in this cause by simply donating a blanket or old cloths to a needy person, whenever you find one on the streets. It might just cause you some hundred rupess but this act of yours would protect someone from the ugly weather outside and is as important as saving a life.
Going forward we plan to make blanket drive a moment and make an impact in more number of lives. Your support is our strength.
