Singapore Power (SP) brought festive cheer to about 100 elderly beneficiaries of Lions Befriends with a Lunar New Year lunch this afternoon.
During the luncheon, management and staff volunteers also distributed goodie packs containing festive items and edible necessities such as biscuits and canned food. The volunteers also visited home-bound seniors at their homes, bearing meals and the festive packs.
Mr Wong Kim Yin, Group CEO of SP, said that the company is committed to helping the pioneer generation improve their quality of life and age with dignity, as they strive “to sustain world class reliability of power supply”.
Led by the Community Chest, the Lunar New Year Festive Care & Share project encourages fund-raising and volunteerism among public and corporate organisations to bring cheer to the frail and lonely elderly during this festive season.
Ms Ng Ling Ling, Managing Director of Community Chest, said the Lunar New Year Festive Care & Share is one of the significant projects which the organisation is taking the lead to unite the community and corporate organisations to reach out to the needy and less fortunate in the community.
Lion Befrienders is one of the six eldercare organisations supported by Community Chest.
