Qoo10 Singapore recently donated 5,000 Fish 'n Chips meals to local charity Willing Hearts, a 100% volunteer-run, non-profit organisation set up to help provide for the needy in Singapore, regardless of race or creed.
They operate a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 3,000 meals daily to
the underprivileged, the needy, and other marginalized members along 42 distribution points including Jalan Tenteram, Serangoon and North Bridge Road.
Spread out over 5 days from 24 - 28 March, 1,000 Fish 'n Chip meals were supplied each day to Willing Hearts for distribution to their beneficiaries. Besides providing the hearty meals, Qoo10 employee James was also on the ground to help deliver the food packets to beneficiaries living in Jalan Tenteram and Serangoon.
"It was a truly eye-opening and meaningful experience for me - I was surprised by the number of underprivileged people who were recipients of the meals. The other volunteers were mainly Singaporeans from all walks of life who took time off from their jobs to help pack, cook or deliver food. It's really a worthy cause and I'm happy to have spent some time to help in whatever small way I could."
