Makar Sankrant Movie
Our resident video expert and youth cinematographer Ishaan Godbole has crafted an amazing movie capturing all the wonderful moments at the 2020 DVMMM Makar Sankrant program. Relieve the memories - thanks to Ishaan's talent and hard work. Well done Ishaan.
Fourteen volunteers from DVMMM cooked breakfast for residents of the Ronald McDonald House on Sunday February 9 2020
We made eggs (boiled and scrambled), pancakes, hash brown, chicken breakfast sausages. Great job by all volunteers but in particular the youth volunteers! It felt great to give back to the society we live in. All volunteers hours will be counted toward the Presidential Service Award.
More slots for volunteering through DVMMM will be opening soon - we plan on having at least one breakfast cooking session a month (14 volunteers), and if people are interested signing up for more.
