From 19 August to 21 September 2016, SLA’s Salsa Charity Team organised four staff engagement sessions at two Peace-Connect Senior Activity Centres. Our staff volunteers interacted with the seniors through activities such as “art-jamming”, in which they made customised sun-catchers, and played BINGO, an all-time favourite. A total of 300 goodie bags that contained a mixture of basic necessities and grocery items were distributed to the elderly beneficiaries.
“We share a common interest of giving back to the community in the spirit of supporting corporate social responsibility,” says Teo Jielin, Assistant Manager, Managing for Excellence, who has also been appointed as SLA Salsa Charity team lead. “It takes passion and dedication to engage the staff; but to be able to bring some joy to the beneficiaries, we know that it’s worth the effort.”
IT TAKES PASSION AND DEDICATION TO ENGAGE THE STAFF; BUT TO BE ABLE TO BRING SOME JOY TO THE BENEFICIARIES, WE KNOW THAT IT’S WORTH THE EFFORT.TEO JIELIN
