Team PM AM Joins Hands with Umang Foundation to Fight for Social Causes
PM AM IT Services joined hands with Umang Foundation to work for the betterment of society through taking up social causes. As a part of these initiatives, a blood donation camp was organized on the 18th of December, 2014. Around 35 employees of PM AM IT Services voluntarily participated in this initiative. The Healthcare staff of Sir J.J. Mahanagar Raktpedhi, Byculla, Mumbai, took over the responsibility of collecting blood. Rahul Hindalekar (Project Leader) was the head of this blood donation initiative.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pankaj Kumar, CEO of PM AM IT Services, said, “due to non-availability of blood, millions of lives are lost every year. Donating blood is a great way to serve humanity and save the life of others.” He further mentioned that, PM AM IT Services assumes responsibility for bringing about a positive change at all levels of the society.
In the coming months, PM AM IT Services plans on organizing many more of such social activities in collaboration with Umang Foundation. Mr. Pankaj Kumar said, “As a good corporate citizen, we will strive to meet the expectations of people. Through our social activities, we will make a contribution towards a better society for the future generations.”
Mr. Oniel Gracious, General Manager of PM AM IT Services, stated: “It is very difficult for individuals to make a contribution to such noble causes due to the lack of time and busy schedules that everyone follows. Therefore, it is the responsibility of corporate companies to take such initiatives by conducting activities within the offices wherein the employees can participate and contribute towards the society. PM AM will continue to organize such activities and give an opportunity to the employees to take such small efforts for the betterment of the community."
J.J. Mahanagar Raktpedhi acknowledged the initiatives taken by the PM AM team by providing them with a memento that was presented to Mr. Oniel Gracious by Shri Ashok Goyal, founder member of Umang Foundation.

Fund Raising for the Education of Kids
With the aim of providing for a brighter future to underprivileged children, the employees of PM AM IT Services Pvt. Ltd. have undertaken a fund raising activity within the organization. For underprivileged children, who do not have resources for education, the employees have collected more than Rs40, 000/- from all departments of the organization. This money will be given to the ‘Kids Education Kit’ initiative of Umang Foundation.
While speaking about the motivation behind this activity, Mr. Pankaj Kumar, CEO of PM AM IT Services, said, “Our organization understands its responsibility towards society and organizes many activities to promote social causes. As we have joined hands with Umang Foundation to collectively work for a better tomorrow, our employees decided to raise funds for Kids Education Kit, which is an education-promoting activity of Umang. I am glad to inform you that our employees have given a helping hand to children for their education by collecting more than Rs40, 000/- within the organization itself. As primary education is still a distant dream for many children, more and more organizations should undertake such initiatives.”
Mr. Oniel Gracious, General Manager of PM AM IT Services, said “Children are the future of our country, and it is our responsibility to ensure that every child gets enough resources to study. The unavailability of study material is one of the biggest reasons why children give up on education. The employees of PM AM IT Services have decided to help such underprivileged children and give them an opportunity to learn and succeed in life.”
Through this Kids Education Kit initiative, study kits will be distributed in schools located in Ulhasnagar, Kalyan, Vithalwadi, Ambernath, Airoli, Thane, and nearby areas. This kit will include a set of notebooks and long books, pencils, pens, crayons, eraser, sharpener, ruler, compass box, geometry box, drawing book and kit holder bag. Since 2008, team Umang has distributed education kits in more than 20 schools.
The employees of PM AM IT Services have decided to organize such fund raising activities frequently to empower the children of our country with education and knowledge.
