Back to School Drive – 2013

Jai Nandalala!

A Message from our Founder, “Pujyashri” Mathioli Saraswathy: 
“2013 Back to School Drive will be recognized as Pushback Drive. When you put on the backpack, you are pushed forward. You are pushing yourself for higher achievements, goals, education and all higher level of attainment in life.”

Dear Friends and Supporters,
Hope you are all doing well. This summer marks the 8th annual back to school drive organized by Nandalala Mission, a non-profit organization aimed at nurturing children’s fullest potentials through educational, cultural, physical, and service-oriented activities.
Nandalala Mission is planning to provide 200 backpacks for needy high school students across the nation this year, too.
Under the guidance and blessings of our Guru, “Pujyashri” Mathioli Saraswathy [Founder of Nandalala Mission (USA) & Nandalala Seva Samiti Trust (India)], local volunteers (comprising largely of school children) buy the supplies and then get together to get the backpacks ready for delivery to The Family Giving Tree, which in turn distributes it to needy school children.

Sponsorship for each bag is $40.00.
Please donate generously and support us!

Checks should be made payable to “Nandalala Mission” and mailed to our address:
