With the holiday season commenced, we would like to emphasize some opportunities for you to participate in. We are participating with various other organizations as part of a Diwali Food Drive, so reach out to us by Nov. 15 with donations or inquiries in order to support Chicagoland food pantries. Additionally, we will be collaborating with Sant Nirankari Mission Chicago for a toy and coat drive to support Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry. We hope that you feel motivated by the various holidays during this time, and we hope that you make a positive impact on others.

Donate A Bhojan #FeedBharat We would like to highlight that we have partnered with Bhojan to provide weekly meals in India's low-income areas. As a group with many of its members having roots based in India, we mustn't overlook the struggles countless face due to poverty and poor infrastructure back in the motherland. We are grateful for this opportunity to make an impact in India, and we hope to continue to expand our presence there. If anyone needs more details about this program, please feel to reach out to us.
