Together We Serve 

On 18 December 2019, Singapore co-operatives brought festive cheers to the senior residents of Jalan Kukoh estate.

 

Themed “Together We Serve”, the CSR event was jointly organised by the Singapore National Co-operative Federation (SNCF), Seacare Co-op, and affiliates from the service sector. About 90 volunteers from SNCF, Seacare Co-op, AUPE General Services Co-op, GP+ Co-op, ISCOS, Istoria Co-opLove Empowered Co-op, Methodist Co-op, Silver Horizon Travel Co-op, Silver Caregivers Co-op, Employment for Persons with Intellectual Disability Co-op (E4PID), SNCF Scholars, Registry of Co-operative Society (the Registry) and Jalan Kukoh Residents’ Committee (RC), distributed a set of gift items comprising a portable fan, a pillow and a loaf of Gardenia bread to 80 households spread over nine blocks of flats in the Jalan Kukoh estates. All gift items were sponsored by Seacare Co-op, Seacare Okiki p-Hub (S) Pte Ltd and Gardenia respectively.

The event started off with an opening speech from the Chair of the Service Sector, Ms Shena Foo, followed by a short briefing from the Seacare team.

 

Volunteers were divided into 13 teams to serve the nine blocks, and each team met and distributed the gift items to the residents in their homes. It was a very memorable experience for the volunteers as they witnessed their joy first-hand. It is such small acts of kindness that make the world a better place for all.

After completing the distribution, volunteers ahead back to Club 52 at the Seacare Hotel where Ms Dolly Goh, CEO of SNCF gave a closing speech and thanked them for their efforts. Over the sumptuous dinner buffet sponsored by Seacare Co-op, the volunteers networked with one another, strengthening their relationships further.

 

The event ended off with laughter and new friendships were formed. Volunteers were glad that they were able to serve in this initiative and look forward to future collaborations.

To quote Barack Obama, “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
