Joy of Giving Week 2014
The members of SIBC organized a Jumble Sale at the Pillai Campus at Chembur from the 7th to 9th of October 2014 to celebrate the Joy of Giving Week.
The SIBC members collected used clothes, shoes, jewelry, curtains, and other household articles and put it up for sale at very marginal prices of Rs. 10 to Rs. 100 per item. More than 500 people from the nearby poor localities visited the Campus and took maximum benefit from this Sale.
On the last day of the Jumble Sale, there was a meeting of SIBC members in the Conference Room. SIBC member, Annamma Paul presented Dr. Daphne Pillai, the Founder President SIBC and Dr. Reni Francis, current Presidant SIBC with cash of Rs. 10,000 collected from the Newspaper Drive conducted by her at Chembur English High School.
During the meeting, it was also decided to use these funds towards purchasing blankets for the victims affected by the J & K floods. SIBC member, Yvette Lee was requested to purchase the same and hand it over for delivery to Jammu & Kashmir.
There was a great sense of satisfaction among the SIBC members at having participated in the true spirit of the “Joy of Giving”.
This event was co-ordinated by Mrs. Annamma Paul, Mrs. Parveen Arif, Mrs. Mamta Patil & Mrs. Preeti Pawar.
