Pujari Group volunteers for Project Open Hand

August 2009
Pujari Group volunteers for Project Open Hand

Pujari Inc, has participated in charitable work for the community, both in the United States and overseas, and recently participated in the program organized by Open Hand of Atlanta. Thirteen members volunteered 4 hours each on March 29th, 2009, to pack 3000 food packets. Esha, a seven year old girl, was part of the Pujari group, and was as enthusiastic as the rest of the team. Kids had real fun while helping the local community and making a real difference in peoples’ lives.

Pujari also donated money to Open Hand which will be spent for food and packing materials.

Project Open Hand is a volunteer non-profit organization offering hot meals, grocery service, and nutrition education to people dealing with a critical, chronic, or terminal disease, and to homebound seniors.

In 1985 in San Francisco, a retired grandmother watched a dear friend die. She realized that for many people, malnutrition was causing death as much as their illness itself. At that time, no social service agency was providing meals to those too weak from AIDS or too impoverished to feed themselves, so she enlisted friends and began to serve meals to seven clients; Project Open Hand was born. It is now a model for over 100 organizations all over the world.
