Do you have a lot of unopened CNY goodies sitting on your table? You can donate them and let someone else enjoy them on your behalf!
It’s Raining Raincoats (IRR), a local non-profit organisation formed to support the needs of migrant workers in Singapore, is calling for donations! You can share your unopened and unexpired CNY goodies with our brothers who toil for our country. These donations will be distributed to the migrant worker community at their dormitories, worksites and construction areas and this initiative by IRR is happening from now until Feb 28.
Time to pack all your unopened and unexpired CNY goodies. IRR has a list of Whatsapp numbers whom you can reach out to for the various donations. They will help to facilitate the distribution of the snacks by giving you a list of the dormitory locations where you can drop the snacks off.
Apart from CNY goodies and after this donation drive, you can still work with IRR to bless the migrant worker community through other donation means. They include pre-loved items such as men’s clothes, backpacks, and more. Do ensure they are washed and in good condition!
If not pre-loved items, you can also work with IRR to bless them with care packs that include daily necessities such as instant coffee, biscuits, toothbrushes and toothpaste, body soap, shampoo, shaver etc.
There is also a correspondent who collects monetary donations used to top up data cards for the workers. This will be very helpful as the migrant workers rely on these data cards to stay connected with their families back home.
The migrant worker community in Singapore is a large one and they are Singapore’s unsung heroes. Every day, rain or shine, they toil for Singapore’s soil and they are the reason we get to live comfortably in our buildings, drive safely on our roads and more. It isn’t easy for them to be away from their families and to be working so hard to send money home. Let us all show some love to our brothers who have been working so very hard for us.
