Charity Book Drive for the underprivileged
About Campaignends 27 Feb 2016, 12 AM
When we read about Ms Yap Hui Hong's story in the Straits Times and her plight of trying to look for someone to take over the 40000 books that she and her late husband had collected so that she could vacate and return her leased premise, we contacted her and took over all her books.
All Saints Home will be embarking on our first ever Charity Book Drive. We not only wish to raise money to aid the nursing needs of the chronically ill elderly, but also to reach out to the underprivileged children in our community by giving them books for their educational learning
Day 1 - Invite the needy students for a free meal and appeal the public to buy an empty Box for a child at $50 and the child can fill up the box with as many books as he or she likes.
Day 2 - Extend the book carnival to the members of the public for avid readers to purchase and own them.
The elderly and sick in All Saints Home are from low-income families or lack family support. Some of the elderly who have children, are themselves retired with their own medical conditions. Most of them came with their unique set of social issues. Gradually, some of the elderly faces abandonment and All Saints Home is left to meet their impending medical and nursing needs without the family's assistance. Hence, we seek your generous and compassionate support in our work to help the elderly and sick to age gracefully despite of their illnesses.
