We love the idea of distributing goodie packs to less privileged families and elderly to tide through a month or so. But we @ The Volunteer Switchboard have decided to take this up a notch. So read on!

We believe in the notion that “everyone should make an effort to give back to society in whatever way possible, however small.” So to achieve that, we are partnering with the younger families for the packing and distribution of food to the elderly in their own neighbourhood! This will happen after we spend the morning interacting with the younger families at Jalan Kukoh. And by doing so, we hope that these families can get to know their elderly neighbours a little better from interactive activities including a goodie distribution exercise, and forge stronger bonds between them.

- Be punctual. We will be having a briefing for all volunteers at 9:45 am on what to expect.
- Engage and interact with the residents.
- Having coffee and chit chatting with elderly
- Assist resident volunteers in packing and distribution of supplies.
- Introduce items to senior recipient families.
- Check with recipient families on supplies from the previous months.
- Be the eyes and ears for the community.
- Assist in activities (if any) planned for the residents.
- Most importantly: Do not be shy & HAVE FUN! Chat with the seniors!

Look for one of the people in green to register your attendance!

- Events are subject to changes or cancellation at anytime prior to event.
- Should there be any changes about the event , registered and waitlist volunteers will be notified via email.
- Each volunteer registration allows a maximum of 5 people. We would highly encourage each individual to register for their account as the system would send an automated reminder to the registered email. If you are coming in a group bigger than 5, please have another friend to register. This will help to update the volunteer count and the community know which event needs more volunteers.
- Volunteers are highly encouraged to update your registration if there are changes to your attendance. And you can help the us anticipate the number of volunteers turning up, and how many more to recruit.
