Seagate raises $630,000 for elderly home, underprivileged children

Seagate Technology has raised a total of $630,000 in a charity drive, the company said on July 28.

The charity drive was organised to mark the technology giant’s 30th anniversary in Singapore.

The money, which is the highest Seagate has ever raised for local charity, will go to organisations that help needy senior citizens and underprivileged children.

As part of the anniversary efforts, Seagate employees also participated in a variety of activities for the residents at the Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) Community Home for Senior Citizens and children at the Children’s Society Student Care Centre in Henderson.

Steve Luczo, Chairman, President and CEO of Seagate Technology said, “This is a great way to celebrate 30 years of operations in Singapore and I am extremely proud of my colleagues’ efforts to help less fortunate members of the community.

“I look forward to a more meaningful relationship with our Singapore community as we continue to make this market our Asia Pacific hub.”

The AWWA Community Home provides accommodation for elderly Singaporeans who require public assistance and have no family or financial support.

Children who attend the Children’s Society Student Care Centre are from lower-income families.
