HTCC Helping Hands, the community service wing of HTCC, undertook Sharing the Warmth, a service project initiated and coordinated by HTCC Youth with help from a few adult mentors. The 2012 service project was coordinated by Nidhi Khurana with assistance from several youth members of HTCC. The group included: Vikram Arun, Nahush Katti, Sumidha Katti, Urmila Kutikkad, Ashwini Mantrala, Nila Palaniappan, Maya Ramachandran, Suryanshi Rawat, and Anmol Sethi. These volunteers made phone calls to HTCC member families and arranged for collection/drop-offs of lightly used winter jackets, scarves and winter boots. A small group of volunteers met on Saturday, November 24, inspected, neatly folded the donated items and sorted them into cardboard boxes based on men/women and youth/adult sizes. The 2012 Sharing the Warmth drive resulted in collection of approximately 40 coats, 6 scarves and several winter boots. Thanks to our volunteers and the many donor families. The items collected in the drive were donated to the Refugee Services of Columbia, MO which assists with refugees as well as non-refugee immigrants from Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America regardless of their color or creed.

Quote of the month
Spirituality does not come from religion.
It comes from our soul. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations, and rituals created by humans, which were supposed to help people spiritually. Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, divisive and a tool for power struggle.
Spirituality is not theology or ideology.
It is a way of life, pure and original as given by the Most High.
Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the Universe, and each other.
