BABA has always imparted the essence of helping for the humanitarian causes. Towards this, Samsthan has been able to organize several social service & community events such as food drives, cloth drives, voluntary services to non profit organizations, sandwich for poor people etc. and will be coordinating many such events in the coming time.
On the community service front, the Samsthan is active at the local, national and global level. Please visit the Temple calendar for any upcoming scheduled community events. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for participation details.
