Chennai’s FM radio station, Radio City 91.1 FM, is organising a CSR initiative, Kalvikku Kai Kuduppom to help the underprivileged.

The station has installed drop boxes all over the city  for collecting stationery like notebooks, pens, pencils, school uniforms and so on to be distributed among the children.

This is the second edition of Kalvikku Kai Kuduppom which was started last year.   

The initiative met success in the first year itself with individuals and members coming forward from various organisations to donate generously for the needy.

This year the activity was kickstarted by actor Surya, who urged Chennaiites to do their best to help children.

Listeners can donate the stationery at any of the drop boxes installed around the city and at the Radio City office.

The toys collected in the ‘Limca Book’ record maker ‘Golu’, last Navratri, were also distributed among children of some orphanages. For further details, stay tuned to Radio City 91.1 FM.
