Lucknow: On 27, August to 29 August the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) in association with ‘GOONJ’ – a voluntary organization that channelizes cloth and other material like utensils, footwear, school material, office equipment etc. from cities as a powerful development resource in the most far-flung villages of India – shall be organizing a Collection Camp at the Alambagh Bus Stand Metro Station.

This collection camp will be organized at the Alambagh Bus Stand Metro station from August 27, 2018, to August 29, 2018. The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has come forward to provide Alambagh Bus Stand Metro Station area as the venue for the collection camp and has also committed storage, manpower and logistics support for the camp. This will go a long way to generate awareness and participation in the cause from the people of Lucknow.

They can contribute clothes, mosquito nets, footwear, umbrellas, sanitary napkins, medicines, food materials and other required miscellaneous items like candles, gloves, face mask, raincoat, water purifier tablets, sleeping mat etc. The dirty, soiled or substandard material should not be contributed to the camp.
