CMDFW sevaks participated in a brand new volunteering opportunity for Diwali this year at Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB) in Fort Worth on November 20, 2021. More than 25 adults and students devoted their Saturday afternoon to helping TAFB with Quality Control in their distribution center, a crucial step in the fight against hunger in the local community. Thanks again to #HungerMitao for their help in obtaining slots, and a big thank you to all the volunteers!
CMDFW also successfully participated in its first Diwali food drive in partnership with Dallas SewaDiwali.org. CMDFW collected more than 2,225 pounds of food at 4 drop-off locations in the DFW metroplex. Our donations were added to all of the collections from Hindu organizations throughout the metroplex, with a total of 110,000 pounds of food collected! This in turn was distributed directly to those in need: 26000 lbs to needy families, 5500 lbs to Bhutanese/Nepalese refugees, 3500 lbs to more than 300+ students from UTD and UTA. The distribution was held at Ekta Mandir, and the event was graced by many local and civic leaders including those from CMDFW. Our sincere appreciation and thanks to Pankaj Kapoor and Madhu Vaddhuri who generously allowed their homes to be 2 of the drop off points. We also thank all those who took time to whole-heartedly participate in this collection!! Your efforts made a huge difference right here in our local community!
