St. Philomena’s College (Autonomous) extends helping hand to its employees affected by the Pandemic COVID 19
Sensing the need of the Management employees of the institution who are facing difficult times for the past few months due to Corona virus pandemic, St Philomena’s College (Autonomous), Mysuru came up with an initiative to distribute kits consisting of food grains and essential items to the families of non-teaching staff of the college.
As a part of this initiative, St Philomena’s College (Autonomous), Mysuru through the contribution of its teaching staff (UGC) handed over nearly 150 kits to the non-teaching staff of the college (office staff, group-C, group-D and House-keeping employees) who were affected by the nationwide lockdown which resulted in great constraints to run the family. Each kit comprised of a rice bag, toor dal, tamarind, chilli, palm oil, table salt, jeera, coriander, mustard seeds and biscuit packs.
On behalf of St. Philomena’s College, Fr. Bernard Prakash Barnis, Rector/Manager of the college, handed over the kits to the non-teaching staff on Saturday, 06th June 2020 at 12.30pm in front of the college auditorium in the presence of Vice-Rector Fr. Maria Xavier Sunil, Campus Administrator Fr. Thomas Roxon Baros, Principal Dr. T. Ruth Shantha Kumari, Vice-Principal Prof. Sanjay Nair, Controller of Examinations Dr. Alphonsus D’Souza, IQAC coordinator Mr. Ronald Prakash Cutinha, Principal of St. Philomena’s P.U. College, Mr. Sunil D’Souza, and other staff of the college.
It may be recalled here that St. Philomena’s College has been at the service of the needy since its inception. In this regard, the aided teaching staff of the college (especially the UGC staff) were requested to contribute generously towards this cause. All the UGC paid teachers along with the college administration made a significant contribution to this noble cause which helped in distributing the kits to many families of the non-teaching staff of the institution.
Earlier to this, in the month of May, as an initiative taken up by Rev. Dr. Bernad Prakash Barnis, Rector of the college, the Management had distributed more than 250 kits of essential grocery items to the local community people.
Rev. Fr. Maria Xavier Sunil, Fr. Thomas Roxan Baros, Dr. Ruth Shantha Kumari, Mr. Sanjay Nair, Mr. Ronald Prakash Cutinha along with Fr. Rector visited the nearby villages and distributed the ration kits. Besides, a few poor families too visited the college campus to collect the ration kits.
