This Lunar New Year, bring hope to those in need and fill their hearts with joy.
Laughter, food, gifts and the warm company of friends and family - these are just some of the things that are synonymous with the Lunar New Year.
Back for its fifth run, Community Chest Fu Dai 2018 aims to bring the same festive joy and hope to more social service users.
For a $50* donation, Community Chest will deliver a Fu Dai of fully sponsored items and necessities to seniors, while a $150* donation will enable us to deliver a Fu Dai to families.
A Fu Dai can bring a smile to a senior who may live alone, and encourage families going through challenging times. Let a bag of festive goodies fill not just their bellies, but their hearts and homes with warmth.
Be a part of this meaningful project by donating to enable us to bring joy to the less privileged during the Lunar New Year festive season.

About the Charity
We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support social service organisations so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged. Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission - to raise funds for the many social service organisations of the nation. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need. Social service organisations supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at - providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, youths-at-risk, adults with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly, families facing difficulties and persons with mental health issues. Over the years, we have built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals, enabling and empowering the social service users under our care to lead fulfilling lives. At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Halimah Yacob, who will be lending her support to our social service organisations.
