Amritsar, December 21

Christmas is not as much about opening presents as opening our hearts. Celebrating the spirit of Christmas, FICCI FLO kicked off a three-day collection drive to collect winter items, including warm clothes, accessories, utensils, toys and other items of use. The executive members of the FLO have set up a collection stall where volunteer donors can come and drop in things that they can for distribution among the needy.

Meeta Mehra, Chairperson, FICCI FLO, Amritsar, said the campaign was a way of sharing some joy during Christmas with the less privileged. “The members, along with their family members wholeheartedly came out with toys, clothing, books, medicines and everything they could give away.

Everyone left feeling overwhelmed with happiness and joy. It was a great start to the festivities lined up. We urged donors to give things that are usable and support the cause. It’s a three-day drive and anyone interested in donating can come do so at our stall outside Mukut House, till December 24th. We will shortlist the organisations and individuals, who need donations from everything that we collect and hand them over the collected items,” she said.

The donation drive would be conducted from December 26 to 31. Day one saw donors giving warm clothes in abundance. — TNS
