Our Campaign Storyends 31 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM
Hello! We are a team of Social Workers, Counsellors and Office Administrators from Lakeside's Family Service Centre (Jurong West).
Working with vulnerable families daily, we understand their children need special care and support as their parents and family members are going through tough times.
While we provide casework and counselling, we also refer the children and youths to Lakeside Student Care, Reading Intervention Services, and The GRIT Project.
Working together helps us address needs like affordable childcare, reading help, emotional support, and enriching experiences for healthy development.
We believe in providing quality resources for disadvantaged children and youths so they have hope for the future, and their families can have the peace of mind in the present.
Our team will be contributing by walking, cycling, baking, and cooking to raise funds! (We also plan to give them toys and books.) Let's do our best for every child and youth that walks through Lakeside's doors!
Please support us in any way you can. Every donation counts, and no amount is too small. Thank you so much!
Do you remember what your dreams were when you were a child? As children, our futures lie limitless in the horizon - and we all have dreams that we can do or be something great. Yet, life circumstances like financial difficulties and family issues mean many children and youths are disadvantaged from the start.
We named our fundraiser #ICAN____ to encourage all children and youths to fill in the blank with their dreams and aspirations and uncover their unique potential and talents.
One of our campaign ambassadors, Smitha will be embarking on her personal challenge:#ICANSparkImagination challenge. For 7 days, she will be unlocking the imagination of children at our Lakeside Student Care through teaching speech and drama and writing. Stay tuned as we share other upcoming challenges by our campaign Ambassadors!
#ICAN____ raises funds for Lakeside's children & youth services: Lakeside Student Care, Reading Intervention Services, The GRIT Project. With your support, we can provide meaningful opportunities, mentorship, and practical assistance for children and youths.
You can make a difference in their lives by donating and starting your own #ICAN____ challenge to raise funds! Together, we hope to raise $300,000 and any amount will be greatly appreciated.
