The lunch talk was conducted by South West CDC and they will cover topics on why should you volunteer, how volunteering benefits you, the expectations and commitments required from a volunteer, basic volunteer etiquettes and much more. “Jurong Port has partnered with the CDC and joined the network of corporate volunteers within Singapore’s south west region,” said CSR CFT Lead, Sheilla Zainal. “From this session, we hope to ignite the spark of volunteerism among colleagues. The CSR CFT are planning a community outreach event with South West CDC and we hope that you will join us and support our initiatives. If each of us contributes with a small act of kindness, little by little, our little will become a lot!”
The South West CDC was formed with the mission to assist the needy, bond the people and connect the community. The organisation brings together government agencies, grassroots organisations, voluntary welfare organisations and the private sector to strengthen the social fabric of Singapore. Through their programmes and initiatives, the CDC wants to promote social cohesion and encourage community ownership among residents, community and corporate partners.
