Partnered with ‘Bargain Book Hut’ & ‘Blessing’ for Week-long book donation drive
Seawoods Grand Central Mall, under their Nexus One initiative and in collaboration with ‘Bargain Book Hut’ and ‘Blessing’ NGO organised ‘Share your Happiness with The Happiness Box’ a week-long book donation campaign on the occasion of ‘World Book Day’.
As part of the campaign initiative the mall asked its patrons, employees, retailers among others to wholeheartedly donate books, study materials etc. in “The Happiness Box” kept at two locations in the mall.
The Mall partnered with ‘Blessing’ to adopt Dehrang, a small village near Panvel for this campaign and specifically targeted the nursery and primary school kids. SGC Mall collected over 800 books as part of the donation drive which included both – academic and story books and the NGO distributed the books among school kids across the hamlet. The core mission of the campaign was to help students avail the basic resources for education, and enhance literacy levels besides spreading the joy of reading. There are around 90 children in Dehrang and they go to a local Aganwadi and primary school. The students aspire to make their life better through education however they face acute shortage of basic note books, story books and most important stationary and school bags. Initiative such as these will help them in a great way to fulfil their dreams.
