Announcements: 

  • MMPGH is proudly collaborating with SewaDiwali.  This is a collaborative initiative by organizations like Yoga, Spiritual, Hindu/Bouddha/Jain temples, Gurudwaras, Linguistic and many Indian socio-cultural organizations. It will be celebrated from (17-Oct-2020) through Diwali (20-Nov-2020).

We will collect food items and donate to the local pantries and needy people. There is a greater need for food collection and distribution for soup kitchens and pantries to serve the growing number of needy families. Please see the flyer attached and reach out to Manali Sane or any of the given members if you wish to donate.

  • Due to the pandemic, 2020 committee was not able to do most of the things as planned; Thus, the current 2020 committee will continue to serve for one more year up to Diwali 2021.  If you wish to be part of this committee, please send an email to ajay_belambe@yahoo.com
