Moved by the plight of the pilgrims at Uttarakhand, NSS volunteers of NRI Institute of Technology donated Rs. 30,000 to the victims of Uttarakhand floods. The students handed over the amount to Krishna District Collector Budhaprakash M. Jyothi.
The NSS unit, headed by Coordinator C. Srinivasa Rao, collected the amount from the students in the college. The volunteers formed groups and collected donations on their own, said college Chairman R. Venkat Rao.
“Students should inculcate the habit of helping others. We advise the youngsters to visit orphans and the inmates of old age homes during birthdays and other occasions and spend some time with them. The NSS volunteers arranged collection boxes at several places in the college and collected the amount”, said NRI Institute Principal C. Naga Bhaskar.
“The calamity would have killed some thousands of devotees and the pathetic scenes telecasted in the televisions moved our hearts,”said NSS volunteers J. Lakshmi Prasanna and V. Karthik, final-year students.
