The Pallia Club members visited Kripalayam, a home for the destitute, especially for people with psychiatric problems, at Kizhakkambalam. The members presented cultural programmes, took up the cleaning of the premises and beddings of the patients, trimmed their nails and combed their hair. The Club members planted medicinal and ornamental plants in the premises. Those inmates who were able to travel were taken for an outing to the ‘Kadambrayar Eco Tourist Centre’, Pallikkara and nearby places to cheer up their body and spirit. Every month, the Club provides medicine, rice and groceries to four families adopted by the club who have bedridden patients. They also provide mouthwash to Cancer patients which are purchased by collecting funds from the campus. The Club provided a wheelchair to Smt.

The College has signed an MOU with Yi (YUVA) - Kochi Chapter. Mrithasanjyivani is a project initiated by the Yi members of St. Peter’s College, Kolenchery, Ernakulam for providing medicines free of cost to the weaker sections of the society. The project aims at collecting the leftover medicines from the students on a regular basis and by associating with the Pain and Palliative Care Units of the Primary Health Centers/ Govt. hospitals, these medicines can be channelized to the needy poor. This initiative of the Yi (Yuva) in association with Pallia Club, the Pain and Palliative care club of the Department of Commerce has been successfully implemented during the year 2014-15. The Unit collected usable but unused medicines from students of the college to be distributed among the patients adopted by the Pallia Club, patients assisted by the Palliative Care Unit of the Primary Health Centre, Kadayiruppu and Anwar Memorial Hospital, Aluva. The quality of the medicines is assured by the Medical Officers of the respective hospitals.
