This year, the children of Podar jumbo Kids Bannimantap will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with a special gesture. They will share their happiness with those who are less fortunate through the Eid Charity Drive initiative at our school.
To participate in the Eid Charity Drive, simply send lightly used and usable clothes, footwear and toys that you no longer need. All donated material will be collected, packed by us, and forwarded to Goonj, a New Delhi-based non-governmental organization that provides disaster relief and community development services across the country. To learn more about this wonderful organization and the work that they are doing to help the less fortunate and the rural poor across India, go to their website.
We hope this Charity Drive will light the spark of giving in your child, and set the tone for a lifetime of contributing to the community.
Remember to send clothes and other material that are not damaged and can be used. All clothing materials must be washed, and sent in a bag. The last date for sending materials for the Eid Charity Drive is June 22.
We look forward to your enthusiastic participation in this initiative!
