We are grateful that several members of the Samaj community supported us with post-dated cheques in 2016. Please keep up the support in 2017. If you did not participate in 2016, please do so now! Your donations help us to provide numerous badly needed services to the community.
All your contributions are welcome- every little bit counts! If everyone in the Samaj community made regular monthly contributions, our debt load would have been a thing of the past! So please step up and furnish us with your monthly post-dated cheques for any amount that you feel you can contribute on a recurring basis. The Samaj and the Shiv Mandir need your help- please open up your hearts and purse-strings!
