BH Global Corporation has once again organized the “Back to School” event to help the needy students of Taman Jurong & Tajong Pagar Community Centre. This event was held at the Popular Book Store in Bras Basah Complex. Around 250 children benefited from this event. They are able to choose items ranging from stationaries to assessment books to prepare for their upcoming semester. Each of them is given a $50 popular voucher, MacDonald’s voucher and a BH Global goodie bag consisting of useful writing materials.
When in the store, the children are excited to choose their desired items. Volunteers assist those kids that are not accompanied by their parents in choosing the correct type of items. Apart from that, we also helped to calculate the value of items so that the children will know if they have to add or remove any items from their shopping cart.
After shopping, the company also engaged external parties to provide face painting for the children. We were glad to see the happiness on their faces as the artiste draws for them. Some of the popular requests from the kids are Superman, Avengers, and Spiderman. We can see that every kid have a hero to look forward to. Although it was an exhausting day, all volunteers find this a meaningful Sunday morning. Let us look forward to more of such activities in the future.
