Speaking about the drive, Allen Career institute, senior spokesperson, said: "Air pollution not only impacts health but also defocuses the concentration of the students in studies and sports. We at Allen are committed to help students whatever way possible and we believe this is our corporate social responsibility also."
This drive is being conducted amidst Delhi's high pollution levels. As of today, Delhi pollution level remains in the 'very poor' category with an hourly air quality index (AQI) of 367. The capital has been under crisis as pollution levels led to shut down of schools in early November 2022. Schools were directed to conduct online school as air quality turned severe.
