On Aug 20, Dhanagam, the donation box at Mylapore MLA office campus at C.P.Ramaswamy Road, Alwarpet will be reopened.

Mylapore MLA R.Nataraj launched this project a few months ago with the aim of donating old and reusable items like clothes, shoes, and books to the needy.

And M. Kannuswamy, a Mylaporean, who works for a Corporate firm and actively volunteers for various CSR activities in the neighbourhood has pitched in along with his friends to arrange the infrastructure (steel container and racks) for the project.

Now, Kannuswamy on the suggestion of Mylapore MLA has taken charge to monitor this project that has been officially named as “Goodwill Stores.”

Since its launch, many people donated a number of items here. “We were also providing the same to the needy. But due to some reasons, since the past few weeks, we could not monitor it properly. Hence, now we have assigned a staff dedicatedly for this process,” says Suresh, the Personal Assistant of MLA.

Dhanagam is a 20 ft high steel container. The donated items are kept on the steel racks placed inside this container. People can donate old clothes, shoes, books and other useful items like medicines and stationery here.”We request the public to donate items in good condition so that they can be used by the needy,” says Kannuswamy.
