SMVDU Katra, April 2019. The NSS at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU), Katra, distributed clothes, shoes, toys, household items, etc. to the construction workers and their families who are staying nearby campus. The students volunteers for NSS formed a group to initiate clothes and other items collection from the campus in March 2019. The students from Engineering, Architecture and Economics participated enthusiastically for this social cause. Both faculty and staff members donated generously for this noble concern.
Some people also donated their children’s toys, books, tricycles, etc. After this, it was sorted and the ones which cannot be used were discarded. These were then repacked and distributed to the construction workers and their children residing in nearby areas of the University. The event was coordinated by Mr. Sumanta S. Sharma (Faculty Coordinator, NSS, SMVDU) and Ms. Shubhangi Suri (Student Volunteer, NSS,SMVDU). The Vice Chancellor, Dr. Sanjeev Jain, has congratulated the team for this stupendous effort and pledged for more such endeavors in future.
