Joint Charity event with CSORG: Lunch for the Seniors @ AWWA

Hi Friends,


Caring Singaporean Out Reach Group.  - CSORG is a fellow meetup group set up by Bob and some other members in 2012. With the sole aim of doing some good for the community (Regionally). 

Over these months, they had conducted many similar events, pls see their website for more info. 


On this coming 9th Aug, our Nation's birthday and a long public holiday :O.  Lets us share a bit of this joy and our good fortune, with those people who had contributed to to the growth and development of this land.



SVM will collaborate with CSORG to organize this lunch @ AWWA community home for the Seniors.

Will will be specially buying pure Vegetarian lunch pack for the 120 residents in the home. And would like to invite all our members to donate generously to this event. (Estimated cost is $2.50 x 120 = $300)

If the amount collected exceeds the amount required, the balance will be used to buy some fruits, desserts etc for the Seniors. 


Plan:

1. Meet @ the home at 11.15am,

2. Distribute the lunch to the Seniors

3. Chat with them if possible

4. As this is the first time we are doing such events, we will keep it simple. If respond is good. More will come...

5. We will not need a lot of members to be present on that day. So RVSP number is kept @ 10. 

6. All donations collected and receipts for the lunch etc, will be posted on this page by 10 Aug.

Pls make your donations (any amount) via bank transfer to me @ my POSB Saving account. 122-39626-6. 


Regards

Mark Soh

    Working with Bob was very nice because he has a good understanding of the situation at the home, plus he's just a really nice person. He's not vegetarian, but because of gout, he's mostly veg. We gave him some advice on how veg can help gout. Bob is hoping we'll do more such events. What so you think? Should we?

    One more simple request. If you have clothing eg, your father and mother don't wear anymore, you may want to give to the old folks. But please make sure its decently new and clean. At least they can save up some money to buy. Thanks again...

    is it possible to open the event to more than 10 SVM members, as there will be 120 guests to try to chat with? Is there any kind of National Day program? Any chance of half white/half brown rice, or the kind of brown rice that looks white, like they have at Loving Hut? Any fruit, such as one of those little boxes of raisins? I appreciate that price is an issue.

      Hi george. With this been e first time we r doing it. Its better to keep things simple. At present. We do not have any other plan for e day. Unless there are any members with some talents and would like to perform.
      We would certainly do more such events in future. And welcome any members to come forward to volunteer.
      Lets wait n see how much donation we can get before deciding on fruitd or other desserts.

    Glad to see SVM is organizing such event. I have been CSORG events several time and AWWA once as it's limited people needed always.
    Except several vegetarians there, most of them like meat. So the vegetarian food we supply are better with tasty mock meat. just transfered 50$ to the fund.

    • Mark S.

      Tks for your input Yongqiang. Will get 1 mock and 1 vegetable.
