“The Token of Happines – Our Collection”

A word from students...

“As we all were aware about the flood situation taken place at Kolhapur and Konkan region, of Maharashtra. The unit of NSS (SKNCOE) had already planned to lend a hand of help to the regions on urgent basis. Our first & foremost duty is help those in need and to provide service to the society without any bias. We as volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is in need and urges help gets our support. On first day of the drive, posters and messages were circulated by us on social media to get more responses for flood disaster relief drive and also collection boxes were kept in college premises for on-field collection of items such as eatables, clothes, masks,etc. So, basically the main focus was on food water and some warm clothes. On the second day, the shops/ general stores in and around the campus of Vadgaon area were approached. After so much of hard-work and dedication, we somehow managed to receive grains, pulses and some food packets from the owners of shopkeepers. Also donations in form of grains and clothes were received from the Sinhgad Technical Education Society’s (STES) staff “.
