NSS gesture

CONTRIBUTING FOR a common cause shows an individual's or a group's concern for society.

An example is the gesture of the NSS unit of M.S.S. Wakf Board College, Madurai, which donated a sum of Rs.5758 to Sri Periya Nachi Primary and Nursery School at Solaiazhagupuram for construction of a concrete ceiling. Hitherto, the school has been functioning in rooms with thatched roofs. The donation has been made with a view to avoid a repeat of the Kumbakonam fire accident.

Seven NSS volunteers, G. Ashok Kumar, K. Satish, A. Sheik Abdullah, Y. Faizal, A. Senthil Pandi, S.M.S. Dinesh Kumar and S. Sheik Roshan mobilised the amount from the students of the college.

Amanullah, correspondent of the college, handed over a cheque for the amount to K. Manikandan, principal of the school.
