Unfazed by the sweltering heat, more than 640 YMCA staff, students and volunteers went on an island-wide street collection for the YMCA Flag Day 2017 on 18 March. Over $15,438 of dollar notes were collected, and 25 bags of coins were sent to the Singapore Mint for counting.
The funds raised will go towards YMCA Silver Fiesta, an event that promotes intergenerational bonding and an active-ageing lifestyle amongst the elderly through Arts & Cultural based programmes, including traditional opera performances and handicraft sessions.
YMCA of Singapore would like to thank all our volunteers for their time and relentless efforts in spreading the power of kindness all over Singapore. We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to all donors for their generosity.
