Staff also raised a total of $20,000, supported by a dollar-for-dollar match from the company, to sponsor approximately 25 lunch sessions for 1,000 elderly from different charity and welfare organisations.
We continued our support of Dignity Kitchen's "Lunch Treat for the Elderly". Five lunch sessions and a mega lunch session with a karaoke competition were organised for the elderly. Our efforts benefited close to 180 elderly with $11,000 raised through staff donations matched by TeleChoice.
In our third-year partnership with Dignity Kitchen, we donated $10,000 in support of their social outreach programme "Lunch Treats for the Elderly". This year's programme also included a snow skin mooncake-making session for the elderly led by a disadvantaged hawker from Dignity Kitchen.
TeleChoice kicked off the first CSR event of the year with our participation in Community Chest Fu Dai 2018, an annual event that brings together the private and public sectors to share the Lunar New Year festive joy with the donation and distribution of Fu Dai or fortune goodie bags to the less fortunate. Our staff volunteers packed and delivered over 200 Fu Dai which contained 13 essential food items and a commemorative EZ-Link card to beneficiaries staying in the Clementi estate.
In celebration of Community Chest's 35th anniversary and as part of the Group's CSR initiatives, TeleChoice participated
in the Heartstrings Walk 2018 on 25 August. Organised by Community Chest and Marina Bay Sands, the event aspires
to bring together partners, volunteers and social service users, to collectively build a caring and inclusive
TeleChoice's staff formed two teams of four marathoners each in the Race to the Sky Vertical Marathon which involved a sprint up 57 storeys to the Marina Bay Sands Skypark. They were joined by Speaker of Parliament Mr Tan Chuan-Jin and Community Chest's social service users. Additionally, 80 staff and their family members, led by President of TeleChoice, Mr Vincent Lim, joined the 4km FUN Walk and Family Carnival along the picturesque Marina Bay Waterfront Circuit together with 30 members from the Singapore Cancer Society. The event was graced by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean and TeleChoice raised a total of $5,000 in support of Metta School, MINDS Towner Garden School and AWWA Integrated Services.
30 staff from TeleChoice's Enterprise Business Group, together with our partner Oracle, participated in the 2018 SGX's Bull Charge Run, an annual charity run that brings together the financial industry and SGX-listed companies to raise funds. This year's run included five inflatable obstacles on the running course which participants have to scale, bringing an added element of fun and energy. The event raised over S$3.3 million in proceeds for SGX's adopted beneficiaries such as the Autism Association (Singapore), AWWA Ltd, Community Chest, Fei Yue Community Services, HCSA Community Services, and Shared Services for Charities.
For the second year running, TeleChoice participated in Community Chest's Fu Dai charity event. 20 staff volunteers from the different divisions packed Fu Dai or fortune bags containing necessities and food items and deliver them to more than 200 less privileged households under the care of Lions Befrienders, a social service organisation that supports seniors in the community. The guest of honour for Fu Dai 2019 was Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister in the Ministry of National Development, and together with fellow volunteers from different organisations, the initiative brought much warm and joy to the service users during this Lunar New Year festive season.
TeleChoice supported the Community Chest Heartstrings Walk for our second corporate social responsibility activity for 2019. In line with this year’s theme “Step Forward, Towards Inclusion”, 30 of our staff and their family members walked alongside and interacted with service users from 4PM Malay Youth Literary Association.
4PM (pronounced Empat PM in Malay) stands for “Persatuan Persuratan Pemuda Pemudi Melayu”, a voluntary welfare organisation whose mission is to maximise human potential for the benefit of the community with a focus on Malay/Muslim youth development. It organises various services including “Bahas 4PM”, the national Malay-language pre-university debating competition. It also runs FRENZ, a mentoring programme for at-risk youth studying at the Institute of Technical Education.
TeleChoice collaborated with Community Chest for the third time in in their annual Fu Dai 2020 charity event. In addition to sponsoring the festive goodie bags consisting of items and necessities, 28 of our staff volunteers were on hand to pack and deliver them to the social service users which included vulnerable seniors and families in need. This year’s event, graced by Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development & Second Minister for National Development and Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry, also featured a workout session lead by Montfort Care GoodLife! programme’s seniors. The CSR activity not only supports the social service users in their material needs but also gave our volunteers the opportunity to engage seniors living alone and to lend festive cheer to families going through challenging times.
TeleChoice, in keeping with our mission of Connecting People, Empowering Business and Community Bonding, took part in our fourth Community Chest's FUDAI event. This year's event was more challenging than previous years as staff volunteers need to observe safe distancing measures while reaching out to service users. Nonetheless, it was a successful event as we managed to deliver the majority of the FUDAI or festive bags containing food and essential household items safely and efficiently.
TeleChoice staff, together with other corporate volunteers, distributed more than 6,700 FUDAI to seniors and low-income families. More than $2 million had been raised from the event and the funds channelled to over 80 social service agencies supported by the Community Chest.
TeleChoice International kick-started 2022 CSR events with Community Chest Singapore Fu Dai. This is our fifth year participating in this initiative which is especially meaningful given the trying times during this pandemic where vulnerable seniors and families remain greatly affected.
Over the course of three hours during one weekend, our staff volunteers packed and delivered over 1,000 Fu Dai or ´bags of blessings’ containing groceries and household essentials to beneficiaries of 80 social service agencies. We are grateful to be given the opportunity to contribute to the community and to play our part in building a more caring and inclusive society.
For the sixth year, TeleChoice participated in Community Chest’s Fu Dai 2023. 13 employee volunteers packed and distributed 800 Fu Dai (Prosperity Bags) comprising food and essentials to bring Lunar New Year cheer to vulnerable seniors.
