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.
