We seek and acknowledge sustained giving from community and corporate partners to address current and emerging social service needs. These needs are better met through such partnerships – with money, time, people and skills – to bring about innovative solutions, effective programmes and initiatives to support our social service agency members and their beneficiaries.
We have been engaging our corporate partners in organising creative events to raise funds for Community Chest beneficiaries. Our corporate partners include:
As part of their corporate social responsibility commitment, Pan Pacific Hotels Group partnered NCSS to launch its “Eat Well With Us” culinary initiative on 6 May 2015. The initiative aims to enliven the meals served at four local charity homes. Eight chefs from the Group’s five Singapore hotels and its Chuan Dou Hua restaurant brand took time off their busy schedule to empower resident cooks from the homes with eight healthy specially-created recipes, in four visits in a span of two months. The recipes take into account the homes’ budget and dietary needs of their residents. More than 600 elderly, persons with disabilities, children and youth will benefit from the culinary collaboration.
Through Care & Share Movement, donations from Community Chest’s corporate partners and government’s matching grant saw the launch of the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park inclusive playground on 22 August 2015. The inclusive playground, a collaboration between NCSS and National Parks Board (NParks), provides special needs friendly equipment, such as a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, a wheelchair swing, a slide with rollers and sensory play panels, that allows children with different abilities to play together. Another four inclusive playgrounds are funded by the Care & Share Movement grant while NParks will also be building six more in different parts of Singapore. By end 2017, the NCSS and NParks collaboration will see a total of 11 inclusive playgrounds being built across the island.
