Namaste,

We hope you and your family are healthy and safe during these uncertain and unprecedented times. During the normal course of time, HSS trains its volunteers to conduct regular social service projects in their cities and counties. This training came in handy, and in no time, all our volunteers planned activities that could be carried out while observing the new norms of social distancing and other CDC-suggested practices.  We are humbled and grateful that we could help our neighborhoods and needy people in the community during this time of crisis.

HSS and Hindu YUVA planned several online activities to keep its member engage in positive thoughts, activities, and maintaining good health. Yoga for Positive Health, students’ helpline, legal counseling, professional networking, and advice for job seekers were other major topics that were covered.
