In a multipronged initiative, more than 20 volunteers from RC Jalandhar, RID 3070, came together to distribute winter jackets to 550 underprivileged families. “We formed micro teams for project execution across different parts of the city. The project was conceived and sponsored by PDG S V Hans,” said Jasmin Pannu, wife of club president Prabhpal Singh Pannu.
A special distribution drive was conducted at the railway station for the benefit of coolies and other Railway staff and the club organised programmes at places like sports academies and slum colonies for bulk distribution of winter jackets.
The beneficiaries included rickshaw pullers, daily wagers, coolies, slum dwellers, physically-challenged people, domestic help and street vendors, besides trainees at the Birring Hockey Academy.
