Evergreen Community Outreach – Volunteering with 好人好事 (HRHS) on 4th June
We’re back to distributing provisions to households, and this time we participated at the distribution of the monthly provisions organized by Hao Ren Hao Shi (好人好事 ). This was at their new distribution hub at blocks 159 and 160 (Toa Payoh Lorong 1). The full activity starts from before 7:30am to around 10:30am. Despite the morning drizzle, provision supplies were unloaded from trucks arriving at the hub, and moved to the respective designated tables all ready to be given to volunteer ‘runners’ that collect the items in the provision backs. In all the target was 1000 sets comprising 28 items in 2 bags.
The team of us was assigned Table 7, which has 4 provision items (choco-pie, instant noodles, canned mushrooms and sweetcorn). Of the 1000 sets, we had to apportion out 340 to be sent to 5 schools, the remaining 670 to fill the bags of volunteers picking items from table to table. When all items are collected, we were assigned addresses in the neighbouring blocks to hand-deliver to the beneficiary households.
The volunteering program will not stop here. We would like to invite more of our friends and clients to join us at the next event on 2nd July (the first Saturday of the month). See you there at our next volunteering program! …
