This event was the result of collaboration between volunteers from Project SEVA, a service arm of Federation of Indian Community Association (FICA), the local non-profit agencies listed below and CRB Department of City Hall.
A proclamation celebrating Diwali was presented by Angela Shute-Woodson and Chia-min Chen on behalf of Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb.

Boxed dinner, hygiene packets and blankets were loaded into volunteers' vehicles and delivered to these local organizations, so the homeless and the refugees will have some needed items for this winter.
Both Mona Alag, the founding member of Project SEVA and Sangita Bafna, current President of Project SEVA were recognized at this event for 36 years of continuous service work to the needy in Cleveland.
