Noida: Residents and office bearers of Supertech Capetown, a residential society, on Sunday distributed reusable woolen clothes to the needy living in slums at Sectors 80 and 116 in Noida.
Arun Sharma, president of Apartment Owner Association (AOA), Mahesh Yadav, vice president, Praveen Bhardwaj, treasurer, Baldev Raj, an active citizen, distributed around 1,000 clothes to kids, senior citizens, ladies and gents from weaker sections of the society.
According to Sharma, most of these families work as construction workers, labourers in small industries and domestic help. He said that these migrant labourers from states like Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Eastern Uttar Pradesh earn a meagre salary and thus cannot afford to buy expensive woolen clothes to fight winters.
