For a $50* donation, Community Chest will deliver a Fu Dai (Festive Pack) of fully sponsored festive items and necessities to the less fortunate.
(Updated 15 Jan 2016) Thank you for your interest and support for the community volunteering event to pack and deliver the Festive Packs. Registration is now closed. Please continue to support the lonely elderly with a donation!
*The $50 and other outright donations raised will be fully channelled for the operating needs of over 80 charities supported by Community Chest. All festive items in the Fu Dai (Festive Pack) to be delivered are made possible by in-kind sponsorship.
Fund-raising and other operating costs of Community Chest are also mainly covered by Tote Board and Singapore Pools, enabling us to avail every dollar raised to social service programmes under our care.
