December chill is upon Delhiites and the national capital witnessed the coldest December Day in 22 Years as temperatures dipped to 7 degrees early this week. As per reports of the meteorological department, severe cold waves will continue unabated in Delhi this week. Observing the severe weather conditions, IPL franchise Delhi Capitals have launched a ‘Blanket Collection & Distribution Drive’ in association with Uday Foundation, Robin Hood Army, Fever 104 FM, and the people of Delhi. This new campaign focuses on providing blankets to the underprivileged and urges people to come forward to spread the warmth.

Uday Foundation

The franchise is holding a 15-day long Blanket Collection & Distribution Drive in the city from 16th to 31st December – the period when due to the bone freezing cold, many homeless people suffer. People can donate spare/unused warm clothes & blankets to help underprivileged & homeless persons. People have been invited to drop off or courier their contribution to Delhi-based NGO, Uday Foundation at 113A/1, Adchini, Sri Aurobindo Marg, New Delhi 110017. While the Uday Foundation has been collecting the blankets and warm clothing, it the Robin Hood Army who are in charge of the distribution of the blankets to the poor, who do not have the privilege of staying indoors in such harsh winters. The campaign was launched by Delhi Capitals on their social media pages on 14th December with the hashtag #DilDikhaDilli.

Mr. Dhiraj Malhora, CEO, Delhi Capitals, spoke on the campaign, “All of us at Delhi Capitals felt that this was the initiative that was required, given the severe cold waves that have been hitting Delhi this month. We wanted to ensure that we can help the underprivileged of our city in some way, and with the Delhi Capitals Blanket Drive, we are more than happy to be making a positive impact on the lives of several poor families around the city. I would like to request everyone to kindly contribute to the drive as well in small or large quantities so that together, we can all make a difference in the lives of the homeless people.”
