Volunteers needed for Lions Befrienders Flag Day 2015

Volunteers needed for Lions Befrienders Flag Day 2015

Lions Befrienders is a voluntary welfare organization that reaches out to the vulnerable and needy seniors in Singapore. Its mission is to provide friendship and care for seniors to age in place with community participation, enabling them to enjoy meaningful and enriching lives. Since its inception in 1994, it have served more than 17,000 seniors islandwide through its Befriending and Community Outreach services with the unwavering support from our volunteers, donors, sponsors and community networking partners.

Currently, the organisation serve a total of 5,500 seniors. It conducts fundraising events to ensure the programmes’ financial sustainability. It is through these programmes that the organisation is able to provide weekly home visitations by trained Befrienders (volunteers) to seniors at risk of social isolation. Lions Befrienders also engage seniors in a wide array of activities at its six Senior Activity Centres to encourage active ageing as well as provide closer monitoring to those who are frail and require assistance for daily living through case management, counselling and home visits of up to three times a week.

Hence, Lions Befrienders would like to appeal to you to join them in raising funds for the work they carry out for vulnerable seniors in Singapore by rallying the students aged 15 years old and above to take up the role of a flag seller for their upcoming flag day event to be held on Saturday, 22 August 2015. Student flag sellers usually commit half a day (i.e. about 4 hours) of their time for this event. In turn, Lions Befrienders would acknowledge their contributions as community involvement programme (CIP) hours.

If you are interested to volunteer, please contact donation@lionsbefrienders.org.sg. If you have any queries pertaining to the event, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Alwyn Chia at 66814963 or Ms Sara Kwek at 66814967.
