Blanket Collection and Distribution Drive
Soroptimist Welfare Association (SIBC) organized a Blanket collection and distribution drive in January, 2021. Every year the families living on the streets suffer from severe illness due to the low night temperatures. SIBC, in collaboration with Mahatma Education Society, collected blankets and warm clothing from their six campuses across Mumbai. About 50 cartons of blankets and sweaters were collected from all campuses. These blankets were then donated with the help of volunteers among families dwelling on the streets of Panvel, Kurla, Sion, Dadar, and several other parts of Mumbai. These were of great relief before the temperatures started dropping in February. SIBC provided blankets to more than 200 people, and the project served SDG #1, “No poverty”.
