5 DECEMBER 2017
Committed to maintaining the highest standards of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in our business activities and in conjunction with International Volunteer Day (5 Dec), an initiative designated annually by the United Nations to promote the ability of volunteers to make a real and sustainable impact. Our colleagues as well as members of the Management were mobilised to support the company’s vision of a volunteer-involving organisation by helping out at Willing Hearts on December 5, 2017. Willing Hearts is a non-affiliated charity which operates a soup kitchen.
Through this platform, our colleagues showcased the meaningful difference made to the community by helping with the preparation of meals in the soup kitchen while others distributed meals around Singapore. Beneficiaries of the lunchboxes included the elderly, the disabled, low income families, children from single parent families or poverty-stricken families and migrant workers in Singapore.
