"This spirit of community giving not only helped to build a nation, but is what continues to drive our vision of empowering every person to live with dignity in a caring and inclusive society."
-Mr Phillip Tan, Chairman of Community Chest
Since its establishment in 1983, the role of Community Chest has evolved to become a connector between givers and the social service sector today, catalysing impactful partnerships and engaging the community in holistic giving. This year, in commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial, Community Chest curated its Bicentennial Community Day Out and Charity Dinner, bringing together service users, donors and partners to care for the community.
In the first part of the activities, 200 social service users and their caregivers were treated to an afternoon of exciting activities at the Gardens by the Bay, sponsored by donors of Community Chest. The Community Chest Bicentennial Charity Dinner saw different partners, donors and givers coming together in a demonstration of holistic giving, sharing talents and skills while raising funds to support over 80 social service agencies under Community Chest.
