Share a little, Care a little-Donate Blood

Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College reaffirmed its resolve of inculcating within its students a sense of responsibility towards the society as it organized its Annual Blood Donation Camp in collaboration with Rotary Noida Blood Bank and M.M.G. Hospital, Ghaziabad on 10 February, 2016.

The camp witnessed an enthusiastic turnout as the students of the college participated in huge numbers to contribute to the noble cause. The HODs, Deans, faculty members and staff members too fulfilled their responsibility towards the society as they proudly adorned the badge of a blood donor.
