The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) Festive Cheer with a Heart programme aims to allow volunteers to befriend and start conversations with beneficiaries in the cancer community. Volunteers will be involved in the planning of the project as well as the packing and delivery of daily food necessities to the beneficiaries' homes island-wide during four festive months of the year.

Cancer patients from lower-income families face many financial and psychological challenges during the festive period. Every year, over 600 festive cheer bags are lovingly packed and distributed to our beneficiaries during the festive periods.

Your kind donation will help to make a difference in the lives of the cancer patients and most importantly, bring them warmth and happiness during the festive period. In these trying times, let's come together to show them that the community cares for them; and that they have not been forgotten or left behind.

Excess funds raised from this campaign will go into General Funds for SCS programmes and services, which include cancer treatment subsidies, welfare assistance, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, free cancer screenings, research, and public education initiatives.

If you or your company would like to take part in this programme to pack and distribute the festive bag, please email [email protected]
