Target of $5000 surpassed! More than $6000 in gift card donations for TSA agents.
FISHER, Indiana – January 27, 2019
Gurinder Singh, along with the Sikh Community of Fishers, are coordinating efforts with Mario Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority and Aaron Batt, TSA Federal Security Director to support the Indianapolis Airport TSA agents who were impacted by the extended government shut-down. Over $6000 in gift/grocery cards. Indian hot food and pizza will be delivered and served to over 250 TSA agents at the Indianapolis Airport on Monday, January 28, 2019, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. Even though the Government is temporarily open, the Sikh Community will still follow through with this act of selfless service.
The Sikh community of Fishers has grown from five families to more than 500 families and have recently launched a $3 million building project. We are incredibly grateful for the vibrant community we have and want to continue extending the humanitarian principle of sharing the fruits of one’s labor with others,” Gurinder Singh (Founder & Chairman, SikhsPAC) recently explained. “The Community Kitchen is the hallmark of our mission and is opened to the entire community.”
Singh believes mobilizing such efforts will convey an encouraging and an optimistic response from others as Sikh temples and faith-based organizations in the central Indiana area to come forward in assisting in the coming weeks, if needed. “Our Community Kitchen will continue serving every Sunday. Our hope is to be able to meet the needs of those who were greatly impacted as well as inspire others to come forward,” Singh expressed. “The communities’ generosity is overwhelming and amazing,” states Aaron Batt. Not every TSA agent is in need, but there certainly are many who are. Gift cards will be shared with those who truly have compelling stories of needs which need to be immediately met.
