Every year during winter, the temperature drops substantially in Bangladesh. The weather impacts those economically weak and living on the streets the most and in the harshest way. In response to this, the IEEE Brac University Student Branch rose up to the occasion and raised funds from the general members in order to buy warm clothes for the deprived people on the streets. Approximately Tk.11500 was raised and with that, blankets and warm clothes were bought in bulks for donation. The executive student members went to Bongobazar, the biggest market in the city for winter clothes and purchased thirty blankets, twelve pull-over sweaters, four hoodies and quite a few hand-gloves and woolen socks. On the 28th of December 2019, from 12AM till 4AM in the morning, the students scoured the streets in search for those who had no  clothes at all to protect themselves from the harsh winter and distributed the clothes to them. The areas that were covered were Khilgaon Railgate, Malibagh,Panthapath,Kalabagan, Hatirpool, Bakshibajar, Fazle Rabbi Hall, Fuller Road, Shaheed Minar Road and Dhaka University TSC. In this exciting and eventful year with so many important and significant occasions, this was the most fulfilling and rewarding experience for the student branch.
