Our Campaign Storyends 04 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
Flag Day is an annual event where NUS students hit the streets across Singapore to collect donations for our beneficiaries. In addition to Flag Day, we are conducting an online donation drive via giving.sg. All our proceeds go towards the Community Chest, where the funds are disbursed to various beneficiaries including Life Community Services Society(LCSS); our selected beneficiary. In previous Flag Days, Pharmacy Flag involved approximately 80 freshmen.
For Pharmacy Flag, we are embarking on a new journey, partnering with LCSS starting this year. Apart from Flag Day, we also involve our students in activities that aim to nurture the children at LCSS holistically. We have engaged our previous beneficiary in a meaningful way, conducting activities such as origami and TikTok dance sessions last year despite restrictions brought about by the pandemic. This year, we aim to conduct even more meaningful activities that will be held physically, and we hope to form strong bonds with them through this.
