About Campaignends 31 Jul 2020, 11:59 PM
Vulnerable groups such as persons with special needs, seniors, and less-privileged youth face difficulties affording or accessing food and necessities. Meanwhile, service providers experience a drop in job activities and income.
Here at YMCA, we 'wok the talk', to reach out and support both service providers and vulnerable groups during this season.
AREAS OF SUPPORT:
1. CUSTOMISED GROCERY PACKS FOR VULNERABLE SENIORS
To support seniors who may find it difficult to go grocery shopping, we will purchase grocery packs based on their needs and deliver it to their doorsteps. This prevents them from having to leave the house and reduces their exposure to others.
2. PACKED MEALS
To support hawkers, private hire drivers, and vulnerable groups, we will work with partnered hawkers and private hire drivers to deliver packed meals to seniors, persons with special needs, less-privileged youth and migrant workers. This benefit both clients and service providers, who are experiencing a decline in patronage and income during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All donations $50 and above are eligible for 250% tax deduction.

The Wok the Talk project is a YMCA Kampung Spirit Initiative.
