It’s that time of the year again! The Boys’ Brigade is collecting food and household items from the public to sort and pack into food hampers for beneficiaries, which will then be delivered to their homes. The BB Share-A-Gift project reaches out to more than 6,000 households who are receiving assistance from Government-funded ComCare programmes and from 202 Voluntary Welfare Organisations.
Every year, we take the kids to one of the donation locations to purchase food items for donation and we also volunteer to deliver food hampers. This year, we have gone one step further and are involved in the publicity materials as well!
There are many ways you can help:
- Go to one of the donation locations and buy food items to donate. They need items like rice, biscuits, cooking oil, instant noodles, condiments, beverages and canned food (halal). You can also adopt wishes at some of the locations. The operating period is until 17 December 2014, 11.00 am to 9.00 pm daily.
- Those unable to make a trip down to a donation location or who are overseas can make an online donation of food and household hampers valued at $30 or $50.
- If you drive and have a vehicle, you can volunteer to deliver food hampers.
- Already actively involved? Tell your friends and family about BB Share-A-Gift and get them involved as well! Like their Facebook page to be kept updated about the items they need.
We have completed one round of donating food items and will be delivering food hampers on Saturday. Do join us in helping the beneficiaries of BB Share-A-Gift!
