Applied Chemistry Student Chapter organised Willing Hearts Food Donation Drive

20 Aug 2021

Towards the end of July and beginning of August 2021, the Diploma in Applied Chemistry (DAPC) Student Chapter organised a Food Donation Drive in collaboration with Willing Hearts, an organisation which provides free meals to various beneficiaries including the elderly, the disabled, low income families, children from single parent families or otherwise poverty stricken families and migrant workers in Singapore. The committee was very heartened and grateful for the overwhelming response from our 180 CLS staff and students, who donated a total of 261 food items.

Even with tightening of measures during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), the students demonstrated resilience and agility in coming up with creative solutions to overcome the challenges encountered. Most importantly, CLS had come together as one family to demonstrate our empathy and care for the society, giving great meaning to this fulfilling and rewarding journey.
