Donations made by Mylaporeans and Mylapore Times has helped 50 families in Srinivasapuram off Foreshore Estate to get dry food and essentials.
The bill came to about Rs.35,000.
The effort followed a SOS call from social worker Kavitha of this area. The Mylapore Times staff put the foodstuff together and transported it to the colony yesterday and Kavitha arranged for a quiet distribution.
Kavitha says that the recipients of the donation are thankful for the support – these include maids, auto driver and painters who are jobless.
