S$50,000 worth of groceries donated to needy families
NEEDY families under the Care Community Service Society in the North East District received S$50,000 worth of basic essentials and healthier – choice groceries from Dairy Farm Singapore at its “Partners in Community” green event earlier this month. A new Singapore record was established at the same event for the largest Singapore map, assembled with 6,000 flowers made from defective plastic bags. The bags were provided by Cold Storage, Market Place, Giant and Guardian. The flowers will be donated to the People’s Association towards their “We Love SG” flower programme for next year’s Chingay event as part of SG 50 celebrations.
