It is a kid's celebration out of their mundane routine to school; but it can be a headache for parents / guardians who would wonder how now to let these young minds laze around too much during holidays, away from homework, homework, and more homework (of the usual Asian academic driven society)
What better to spend off their (seamlessly unlimited) energy, at the Food Bank?
Most of the kids who are well off in the warm arms of their loving family often have come to mind that there is lack; and the opportunity to show them to see with empathy towards others are scarce.
Not for these young minds.
This charming young lady has decided to follow mommy to the Food Bank on Wednesday, during her school holiday break to help sort out all the donations collected for the Christmas Giving outreach events.
From sorting out healthcare products to picking up good quality hand-me-down toys (while making friends along the way) was her on-the-go modus operandi for the day.
If you have read our previous newsletter before you would recognise these grandchildren from one of our food bank recipients, uncle Alex (who's still ongoing with shingles treatment) also came to assist at the food bank, fully utilizing their free time to sort of the donated assorted biscuits so that we can plan ahead which families will be receiving which necessary items.
By the time all is done, all the necessary items were well arranged, ready for (round 2) Saturday's food packing and distribution for other outreach programs that are conducting the Christmas Giving outreach programs on Sundays.
The uncles and aunties from the Wednesday volunteers team were very blessed and grateful with the extra hand to speed things up ready for Saturday's packing.
