Calling Overseas Singaporeans to donate to the needy
About Campaignends 31 Dec 2015, 11:59 PM
The BB Share-a-Gift Project seeks to provide beneficiaries who are on the Public Assistance scheme with general household and grocery items. These items are packed into our Gift Bags which we engage the help of fellow Singaporean volunteers to personally deliver to the beneficiaries. Items included are rice, milo, cooking oil, biscuits, beverages, adult milk powder, condiments/seasonings, halal canned food, instant noodles and basic toiletry items such as toothpaste, soap and detergent.
"The Boys' Brigade has been helping me for two to three years. Every year, they will send me food rations. I am very happy. Thank you very much Boys' Brigade, for helping me so much."
Tan Beng Kee is a widower who lives in a rented flat. She receives help from the Public Assistance Scheme. Every bit of support to stretch her dollar counts, especially where household essentials is concerned.
The Boys' Brigade (BB) was founded in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1883 as a uniformed youth organisation. Today, the movement has spread across the globe with over half a million members worldwide. The BB in Singapore was founded on 12 January 1930. We employ a holistic approach in the development of youths. Through our programme, we hope for our youths to be world-ready, with the passion to act on their dreams and to serve and care for the community. Boys discover more about themselves, overcome challenges and broaden their perspectives through our exciting outdoor adventure activities, meaningful community projects and enrichment programmes. Increasingly, the emphasis is on leadership development, team building, life skills, adventure activities and community service. The BB members' experiential learning journey takes place in three specially designed programmes, namely Juniors Programme (Primary Schools), Seniors Programme (Secondary Schools) and Primers Programme (Polys, JCs and ITEs).
