VT Seva Detroit: Mailing Supplies Project to help Penrickton Center for Blind Children (REMOTE)

Penrickton Center is a private non-profit organization that provides care and support to blind, multi-disabled children and their families.Penrickton Center for Blind Children provides services to families at no charge, and relies entirely on donations from the community. Throughout the year Penrickton Center sends out requests for donations, and invitations to raise funds. VT Seva Detroit volunteers got this opportunity to help them assemble their Mailing Supplies items in envelopes as per their directions for their fund raising purposes.


Timeline: May 1st, 2021 to June 5th, 2021 Items Delivered: June 6th, 2021

We received 20 signups within an hour of project release in groups. The mailing supplies were picked up from the Penrickton Center, sorted and organized as 20 kits with 250 counts of each items.

The kits were later distributed to volunteers to do at their homes and then to be dropped off before June 5th, 2021. We had 20 youth volunteers who participated in this remote volunteering project. Each volunteers assembled perfectly 250 envelopes with those mailing supplies items provided.

On the whole we delivered around 5000 envelopes in this first batch of our Mailing Supplies Project to Penrickton Center for Blind Children. We received lots of appreciations from the Penrickton Center coordinators for this great help by our volunteers since it saves a lot of their time in doing this task before proceeding to their next step of sending these mails to all their donors.

Youth volunteers who participated:

Aarush Arun; Abhinav Suresh; Ananya Ramanan; Harish Jaishankar ;Ish Niranjan Patel; Ishani; Kaavya Karnati; Karthik Tilak ;Likitha Gidijala;Nikhil Aerabati; Oviya Jaishankar;Rishi Adduri;Rohan Patil; Sai Sahasra; Sai Karnati ;Saisha Srivatsan;Shreya Srivatsan;Shruthi Adduri; Siddharth Tirumala Kanduri; Tarun Rajesh

This project was so successful & liked by our Volunteers that many wanted to do more of the mailing supplies. Hence we have brought in the second batch of the supplies from Penrickton Center and we will be executing that as our next remote project for Penrickton Center.

Due to popularity of this remote project, we reached out to Penrickton for our Third Batch to do more help for them in assembling their mailing supplies. They were kind enough to give more kits for our volunteers to help them. The supplies were picked up on June 24th from Penrickton; the items are sorted and organized as 18 kits ready to be distributed to volunteers.

All the mailing supplies project kits from our 2nd batch project youth volunteers and 3rd batch project youth volunteers all were sorted, organized in bins and were dropped off on July 20,2021 at Penrickton Center, Taylor, MI.

On the whole, we did around 13,000 envelopes assembled including our first batch which is simply amazing work

We greatly appreciate all above youth volunteer’s awesome work and their parents support to coordinate with me for picking and dropping off their kits on time.

We are grateful that Penrickton Center was kind enough to give us 3 times this opportunity to help them in a big way towards their Penrickton Center fundraising efforts to support Blind Children.

We are also looking forward to visit their special ed school where their kids goes in Wyandotte sometimes next year once they open up for group visits.

We would definitely continue to serve Penrickton Center every year in whatever ways we can.
