Date: January 2021

Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology in association with Pillai Group of Institutions on the behalf of Mahatma Education Society conducted a Community Service Day as “Blanket Donation Drive”.

To make up for the omission in 2020, Mahatma Education Society joined forces to observe Community Service Day in 2021 and announced it as “Blanket Donation Drive” despite the continuing pandemic. Global warming has not only made India’s summer unbearable, but also the winters bitterly cold. Our team at MES realized that while we enjoy this season getting comfortable and cozy in quilts, the underprivileged go through an arduous time; without access to proper shelter and warm clothes, their hardships only multiply 100 fold while the blanket drive was the least we could do. All the six MES and Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology pooled resources and collaborated to conduct the blanket drive in January 2021. The team personally distributed these items in various parts of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. We are grateful to all the students and faculty who supported this cause by donating everything they could spare. We hope this drive brought a little comfort and warmth to the families we reached out to, and blessings to those who were part of this drive.
