Charity Gala Dinner
Platinum Package @ $5,000

---------------------------------------------

The elderly residents of St. John's Home can finally have peace of mind, because the Home's land lease issue has been settled, and the residents do not have to worry about their accommodation or livelihood. This is especially so for elderly residents who have been staying at the Home for many years. Our longest-staying resident has been with us for 16 years.

The Home's most urgent need and biggest challenge right now is to construct a new building, on a smaller plot of our existing land, in two to three years'time.

And we invite you to support us by taking up a Gala Dinner (Platinum) package, which includes dinner for a table of 10 persons.

About the Charity

#SGUnited #GiveYour600
Established in Dec 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.
The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.

Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.

We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.

We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.

The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
