We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. - Winston Churchill
While we focus a lot on self-improvement, an important part of living a happy and fulfilling life includes being part of a close-knit community where you can share, help, and support the people you care about.

It’s easy to get so wrapped up in fixing your own life that you forget about helping others. And while it’s important to put yourself first sometimes, it’s even more important to help others whenever you can.

The NSS and KCDC volunteers have not forgotten what was taught to them in college, when everyone just looked out to stay indoors and keep themselves safe, there were few volunteers who took an initiative to help homeless people with food and water.

We appreciate the following student volunteers for their tireless effort and great gestures:
