BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, helped BAPS Charities collect winter clothing and food for the homeless on 15 December 2018 as part of its on-going commitment to serve the needy in the local community.
A variety of warm pieces of clothing, including jumpers, jackets and trousers, as well as a large collection of tinned food was deposited at The Swaminarayan School opposite the Mandir.
More than 3,000 individual garments were collected and distributed to Crisis, the “national charity for homeless people.” In addition, 600 cans of food were delivered to three foodbanks – Brent Foodbank, Wembley Foodbank and The Salvation Army in Harlesden.
Kesh Morjaria, a lead volunteer for BAPS Charities, shared, “Being homeless brings many tough challenges but at this time of the year, it is particularly saddening. We hope that the clothes and food can provide some warmth and comfort to those without a roof over their heads.”
