Chandigarh, February 10, 2017:
In a warm-hearted gesture, Elante mall, the region’s favourite destination for shopping, food and fun, today kicked off its “Helping Hand, Human Touch” drive by distributing more than 5,000 warm clothes among poor families in association with the NGO “Serve Humanity, Serve God”.
This winter, Elante Mall took an inspiring initiative to encourage its patrons to donate warm clothes for the poor by placing boxes at strategic locations in the mall for collecting these clothes. The initiative struck an immediate chord with the visitors, who contributed to the noble cause by giving away more than 5,000 clothes.
While the Elante staff, along with volunteers of the NGO, visited four slum areas across the Tricity Masaul, Majri Jattan, Nayagaon & Colony Number 4 to give away the clothes, the mall also reached out to the underprivileged by hosting a lavish lunch for about 50 slum dwellers and taking them around the mall to make them feel special. They had a time of their lives as the mall staff engaged them with various exciting games at Fun City and lunch at KFC on the third floor of the mall. Mr Anil Malhotra, Chief Operating Officer, Elante, distributed warm clothes among these special guests.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr Anil Malhotra said, “This is a small gesture intended to make people from the deprived sections feel wanted. We, at Elante, strive to contribute meaningfully to the society by shaping a better tomorrow for the less fortunate. We thank our patrons for making this effort really worth it.”
Discharging its obligations towards the society, Elante has been at the forefront of various social welfare initiatives. Health being one of its key focus areas, Elante has donated incubators (baby warmers), medicines and blankets to patients at Government Multi-Speciality Hospital, Sector 16, Chandigarh and the PGI. Even earlier, it had donated blankets among the underprivileged to shield them from the biting cold.
