Our Campaign Storyends 09 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM
This platform is for A*STAR staff to contribute towards the Community Chest. The Community Chest was first established in 1983 to help empower the lives of the disadvantaged, focusing on children with special needs and youth-at-risk, adults with disabilities, families, persons with mental health conditions and vulnerable seniors.
The A*STEP Challenge for Charity encourages A*STAR staff to lead an active lifestyle and at the same time do our part for the community.
The Challenge aims to channel the donations raised through this effort to the Community Chest to aid them in their charitable causes as the A*STAR family unite to achieve our goal of clocking 15 million steps in total.
