Donate Old Clothes or Blankets:
We can donate our old clothes, bed, fans, blankets, sweaters, shawls, napkins, home vessels and many more things. This winter is really harsh for people who barely have clothes to keep them warm. Your old trash can be their treasure.
Donate Time and Saplings:
Donating happiness is the most powerful way to give.
As old age people undergo great difficulties in life and lack love, affection and care it always leads to mental stress.
You can donate your time by visiting our Happy Old Age Home and spend time with the grannies. The elders need companionship and emotional support.
You can donate saplings, seeds and plants to the garden of old age homes. It creates a peaceful environment for them. Studies have shown that spending time in nature helps in depression.
If a poor and destitute old person is provided at least one wholesome meal in a day, she has a chance to face the challenges of her hard life..You may choose to sponsor mid-day meals for one month for the elders. You can contribute food material like rice, lentils, vegetables, etc.
Education is an investment, which will pay the interest of knowledge until the end. India is getting educated, but there are many uneducated children here. You can donate notebooks, pens, pencils, school bags, water bottles, lunch boxes, interesting novels to read and Craft supplies (scissors, colored pencils, stationary, stickers… etc.). You are welcome to donate items like Library Books (reference books, novels, children’s story books.
Donate Old Furniture:
We usually lack chairs and beds and in our old age home, many elders are advised to sleep on the bed, so we can happily accept any piece of such old furniture as it might help our elderly people so much. Benches, tables, chairs are useful for our orphanage.
Medical Kit: Consider donating COVID safety kits : masks, gloves, disinfectants. Also Band-Aids, ointments, medicated wipes and bandages are useful to treat minor injuries.
Do you have an old bicycle in running condition? It is useful for children to go to school from our Orphanage.
You quite possibly upgrade your cell phone every year or two. Instead of piling up used devices in a drawer, consider donating all but one backup phone. Your old phones are very useful for people who do not have a phone. Consider donating a smart phone for children to attend online classes.
Toys and Sports Equipment
In Seruds Orphanage, we have children from 6 to 17 years old. There’s a time to work and there’s a time to play, as the saying goes. Our children are lively and active, and love to play. Please feel free to donate Toys (Lego, dolls, cars… etc.) and Sports equipment (roller skates, balls, badminton rackets… etc.).
