Blood Donation Camp
Blood Donation Camp is a biannual event organised by the NSS unit of PEC in collaboration with the Department of Transfusion, PGIMER (Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research). Doctors from the PGI coordinate and collect blood from the donors. A star donor ceremony is also conducted wherein donors having donated blood more than 4 times are felicitated and given a small token of appreciation. The essence of donating blood that it can save lives of about 3 human beings certainly elates the conscience of the donors. Over 550 units of blood are collected annually in the camp.
The 7-Day Camp is an annual event by NSS wherein several sessions are conducted to ensure the all-round development of the students. The sessions aim to inculcate values in the students, educate them on various humanitarian issues and teach them to be successful in all walks of life. The camp aims for the students to grow better, physically and emotionally as well as academically and morally.
Teacher's Day Celebration Drive
Teacher’s day is an opportunity to promote and recognize the importance of educators in the future of every generation and to show appreciation and highlight the many contributions of the teaching profession. Keeping in mind the selfless devotion and dedication of our professors, the student volunteers of NSS-PEC reciprocate their bit, by distributing Teacher’s Day cards to the retired faculty members of PEC on the 5th of September every year. The professors share their memories and remember their old students and talk of positions that they have achieved in life.
Cloth Collection Drive
NSS unit of PEC conducts a cloth collection drive for the underprivileged section of the society and thus helps to provide them with blankets, jackets, sweaters and quilts during the harsh winters. Volunteers collect old clothes from students and faculty to be donated to the people in need of them. This drive has a lot of participation and contributes to the aim of NSS to better the living conditions for the underprivileged.
Diwali Sweets Distribution Drive
On the auspicious occasion of Diwali – The Festival of Lights, when all families join together to celebrate, policemen are seen on roads, maintaining the law and order. Making merry and enjoying to the fullest every second of the festive season, the NSS unit of PEC does not forget to thank the real heroes of the society - the policemen. Continuing with the tradition, year after year, NSS volunteers distribute sweets to the policemen on duty at numerous traffic junctions and markets in the city. The volunteers thus offer gratitude to the policemen for serving the society and wish them a Happy Diwali.
Workshop Coat Distribution Drive
The NSS wing of PEC also holds a Workshop Coat Sale programme every year for newly joined students, coming in for the registrations and are provided with coats which would be required for their workshops. The coats are brought in from Ambala where they are made by people of Self Help Groups. NSS unit provides the coats at a price less than the regular price, with an aim to benefit the Self-Help Groups as well as the students. Thus here again NSS fulfils its motive to help all members of the society.
