Award-winning non-governmental organisation Goonj has collected hundreds of bundles of used clothes and household items during its one-week-long ‘1,00,000 Acts of Giving’ campaign.
The collection drive encourages people to donate used household items at schools, residential societies and markets. The donated items are collected and sent to Goonj’s head office in Sarita Vihar, where they are sorted and recycled into usable bags, rugs, clothes and other items. They are then sent to rural communities across the country.
At a collection point in Noida, businessman Deepak Mani had two unusual items to donate — a walker and a shower chair-cum-commode. “These belonged to my father. He died in June… he hardly got a chance to use them,” said Mani.
