SB Club launched a new community outreach initiative with the social objective of reaching out to our elderlies who live alone, including the maintenance of their homes, especially for those who may not be physically fit enough to do so.
The very first outreach activity on 19 January 2019 was in Jalan Bukit Merah Estate.
27 SB students stepped up to volunteer and help elderly residents living in the HDB rental blocks.
Tasks done by our enthusiastic volunteers included housekeeping to cleaning rooms and toilets, clearing trash, painting walls and even exterminating bed bugs!
Although exhausting and operating out of their comfort zones, the volunteers were gratified at being able to help the elderly - seeing their happy faces as they viewed their now, much cleaner homes was indeed rewarding and satisfying. It was really a day well spent!
