Norcal Punjabi Youth Foundation is committed to giving back to the community. We feel that it is our duty to use the funds we earn wisely, not only towards the events we host but also towards enhancing the quality of life locally and globally. The two charitable organizations that we support are: National Brain Tumor Society and Sat-kartar Trust.
NBTS – Are you DTF (Down to Fight)?
This year alone about 210,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. Even in spite of this, hope and spirit that a cure is underway keep these patients fighting everyday.
The National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is putting the search for a cure into overdrive. Progress is being made, but there is so much more to be done. Please support our efforts by making a tax-deductible charitable donation towards the fight against brain tumors! It is our dream to send an inspiring message to all in keeping hope in fighting and finding a cure for this terrible disease. Please pass this message down to family and friends.
BABG Volunteer Work
BABG has always strived to be more than just a bhangra & giddha competition. We believe in giving back and it doesn’t matter what form that action takes. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering with our committee to give back to your community.
We volunteered our time with an organization called Living Arroyos. Their program renews and enhances urban stream and riparian (streamside) habitats in the Livermore-Amador Valley. They are an integral part of the community’s water supply system, help protect neighborhoods from flooding, and help counteract pollution. We got to assist them with hand weeding grass from where they have planted oak trees which are native to the state of California (ever wonder why OAKland has its name?). The hills used to be full of them so they are trying to bring them back by planting new ones along the streams. Oak tree or not, planting trees in todays environment is beneficial in so many ways and we would like to thank Living Arroyos for allowing us to be a part of such an inspirational and monumental program!
