PETALING JAYA (Feb 15): In the spirit of Chinese New Year, S P Setia Foundation delivered gift baskets during its visit to the Klang and Coast Chik Sin Thong Old Folks Home in Selangor last week.
The visit, a continuation of the foundation’s ‘Sincerely Setia’ campaign, was led by the foundation’s management committee member Adelene Wong along with Team Setia who were received by the chairman Ng Tian Peng and committee members of Klang and Coast Chik Sin Thong Old Folks Home.
The gift baskets, containing dry food such as rice, crackers, cooking condiments, instant beverages, and essentials like towels and underpads, were delivered to the 28 residents at the home who are aged from 65 to 93 years.
Along with the gift baskets, festive angpows were also given to each of the senior residents of the home.
“We hope that these gift baskets jointly contributed by the staff of S P Setia will not only help reduce the financial burdens of the home but also uplift the spirit of the senior residents here,” Wong said.
During the visit, members of S P Setia Foundation and Team Setia also joined the senior residents for their daily activity which is planned by the home every week.
This gift basket donation programme is in line with the foundation’s second Object of Trust, which involves providing aid to meet the needs of underprivileged, disabled, poverty-stricken or critically ill Malaysians.
S P Setia Foundation, which was established in 2000, also delivered gift baskets to 36 senior residents at Joy Garden Old Folks Home in Semenyih, Selangor earlier this month.
The foundation aims to help underprivileged communities in Malaysia with the focus on creating positive impact, foster integration and national unity, and cultivating a more caring society.
Under the foundation’s Setia Caring School Programme, it has adopted nine schools in Selangor, Penang and Johor.
The programme, which has been running since 2015 aims to cultivate future leaders who are not only academically successful but also grounded in positive moral values and possessing empathy for all in a multicultural community.
