3000 Rice Dumplings for the Elderly & Needy Families

  • Willing Hearts soup kitchen

    50 Genting Lane, 4th floor, Singapore (map)

    1.327820 103.874016

  • Hi Members,

    This is to replace the previous rice dumplings making at Hougang. Reason is that they have too many volunteers so they can't take in anymore. However, we are glad that Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen is willing to let us use their kitchen and prepare the ingredients for us. We will try to make 3000 rice dumplings and distribute them to old folks and needy families in Singapore. Each rice dumpling we make for the old folks and needy families will costs S$ 1.00. We will prepare both Vegetarian and Halal Non Vegetarian ones.

    If you wish to donate a rice dumpling or two to the needy and old folks, please contact Bob at 82117335. Otherwise you may come to help to wash rice, leaves, preparing and clean up. This is a one year one time event and I hope we can make these old folks and needy families happy. Btw, we will be giving 300 dumplings to AWWA. We hope to achieve our goal so that we can give each old folk and needy families 2 rice dumplings each. I'll not be able to help out due to prior appt so please contact Bob should you need more info.

    Thank you for your support

    Regards

    Sandra

    Ok All, please take note....

    This is the lastest news from the kitchen. Tomorrow's rice dumpling is cancelled. The aunties who are teaching and doing the rice dumplings couldn't come tomorrow, besides all the ingredients are used up.
    However, if you wish to help in the kitchen in other areas like cutting vegetables or cleaning and washing, they still welcome you. They need volunteers everyday.
    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding.

    Bob

    We will start our rice dumpling session around 12pm and probably ends around 4 or 5pm, then we need to clean and wash the kitchen after that.

    Sorry, I accidentally deleted the group, my bad :( I would like to say again, since there are so many volunteers going for this event, I would like to say again that not all can do the wrapping part if you are only going for that. Besides every damaged dumpling done by you will be charged S$ 1.00, this is what they will charge. Hope you understand.

    Don't get disappointed if you can't find a place for you at the table to wrap. It's first come first serves. If you are willing to help out in other areas like washing, cleaning, packing and delivering, then you have things to do.

      I am suspecting there will be some trouble makers going there to ruin the dumplings and making me pay for the damages. I will make it straight, if you ruin 5 rice dumplings, you will be asked to leave the table for the next person and you need to pay for the damages.

    Since the organiser has become former member, it's better to join the other event

    ok, for those who can get into the fb. This is what going to happen;

    1. Participants must not only just making dumpling but also need to clean and wash the kitchen after that. I think it is fair that they let us use the kitchen in clean condition, and therefore we need to return them in clean condition too.

    2. If you like to learn how to make dumpling, you may but if you damage a dumpling, you will have to pay for it because they will charge me for S$1.00, as it will be a waste of food and time to prepare. Hope you understand my point.

    3. Also right now, our donations are only able to make 1000 dumplings, participants may wish to donate to reach the target or near the target.

    Thanks Bob
