best ngos to donate blankets in chennai

The most anticipated winters are around the corner, giving us all the more reasons to stay outdoors, even during the afternoon sun. All you need to enjoy this winter to the fullest is warm clothes. With winter making its onset in numerous parts of the country, people have pulled out their respective blankets, mufflers, jackets, shawls, etc. But, while we have all the amenities and a house to beat the winter with, many have to bear the winters in the open, with no protection. The chilly winter evenings can be quite a scary experience for the underprivileged.

A lot of us throw away our old winter wardrobe to make way for new clothing, or just keep it in our cupboards or suitcases. However, there are a lot of people out there who need such clothing and blankets to keep them warm throughout the winter. This Winter Season, let’s work wholeheartedly to contribute to the cause.

Here’s a list of NGOs to which you can donate:
