When you begin your service as a volunteer with Yong-en Care Centre, you are embarking on a worthwhile and delightful journey. You may not be able to do everything but you can definitely do something to make a difference in someone’s life.
In Yong-en Care Centre, we will work with you and support you in your placement to make the volunteer experience as meaningful as possible.
CONSIDER CONTRIBUTING IN THESE AREAS
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY/DOING GOOD
We welcome Corporates or Institutions looking for a meaningful cause to support, as well as fun ways to engage your organisation. We also welcome individuals wanting to do good. Some ideas:
1) Dementia Day Care
Support our team at Dementia Day Care in daily activities for our dementia clients.
2) Helping needy households
Assist in food packing, food distribution, cleaning/painting of rental flats, be-friending lonely elderly, etc.
3) Charity Golf Tournament – Annual fundraising event
Sponsorship consideration or golfers to book flights to play for charity.
Volunteer to help at the events/PAR3 challenge.
4) Partnership in your events
The following are some ideas for such partnership:
Charity Car Wash
We are glad to collaborate with you to do a charity car wash in your premises with your colleagues or students and volunteers running the event together.
Charity Run/Walk cum Family Day
Partners can consider hosting this event as one of your ‘Family Day’ event with Yong-en as your beneficiary charity. Apart from fund-raising by the runners/walkers, we could set up booths selling craft made by our beneficiaries.
For Corporates/Institutions with talents, do consider showcasing these talents through a Charity Concert; with Yong-en as your beneficiary charity.
We are open to other ideas, and look forward to having a discussion to explore ways that we can customise programmes with your organisation.
