I am proud to inform you that I’m a Freemason and a member of Kitchener
Lodge No. 2998 E.C, a Lodge in its 111th year of existence. It might interest
you to know that the Freemason’s not only are the world’s oldest fraternal
organization, we also lead the globe in charitable donations. Its three cardinal
principles worldwide, applied to six million members, are Brotherly Love,
Relief and Truth.
As part of a charitable endeavor, we are collecting surplus woolens from
members and friends, to be deposited at the Lodge on Monday the 6th January
2014. These woolens, which will ultimately be passed on to the needy in and
around the Delhi/NCR region, can be of any size and form including but not
limited to jackets, trousers, blazers, blankets, sweaters and shawls among
others. As long as you believe the article you’re donating can help insulate a
person from the fatal effects of a cold winter and is able to provide them some
warmth, it is welcome.
God has been very kind to all of us. Last year, when we all were cozily sitting
before the heater in our home snugly wearing woolens, there were many less
fortunate who were out in the open without any protection. The same chilling
winters are approaching again. I thus appeal your good self to take some time
right now and reach into your wardrobes and trunks to help those less fortunate
than us. From a single scarf to a trunk full of your children’s old woolens –
everything is welcome.
Let’s talk and work out how we can get your contributions to the Lodge before
the 6th of January 2014. Please do call/mail if there are any further clarifications
I may provide. Alternatively, please mail Kitchener Lodge directly at
