Yishun Charity Shop Accepts Donations Of Toys, Baby Care Items & More To Help Lower Income Families
The donation drive is happening on 24 Feb.
“There is beauty in giving more than receiving.”
And when a community comes together for that sole purpose, it is nothing but an inspiring and heartwarming sight.
In a recent Facebook post (16 Feb) by Louis Ng, Nee Soon GRC’s Member of Parliament (MP), Project Hope was introduced.
It is an initiative by the community, for the community.
The community project was created to appeal for the donation of daily necessities which will be made available to lower income residents in Nee Soon East, Yishun.
The donation drive will be held next Monday, 24 February 2020 (details at the end).
Run entirely by dedicated volunteers, these items are housed in a “special shop” where residents can come by and get what they need.
It is unlike the usual donation where donated items are placed in bags and sent to individuals or families.
“But it’s not just about giving but most importantly empowering our residents with choices,” said Ng.
Here, individuals can choose what they want and need.
Milo beverages, instant noodles, canned food and condiments are just part of the stash of donated items.
While daily necessities are available for selection, Project Hope also provides a variety of donated goods from toys, old clothing, home appliances and baby products among others.
Children beamed with smiles as they got to pick and bring their favourite toys to bring home afterwards.
Parents can also expect to see some kids clothing and infant care products. This hopefully provides some relief for families with lower incomes.
