When you begin your service as a volunteer with Yong-en Care Centre, you are embarking on a worthwhile and delightful journey. You may not be able to do everything but you can definitely do something to make a difference in someone’s life.
In Yong-en Care Centre, we will work with you and support you in your placement to make the volunteer experience as meaningful as possible.
CONSIDER CONTRIBUTING IN THESE AREAS
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY/DOING GOOD
We welcome Corporates or Institutions looking for a meaningful cause to support, as well as fun ways to engage your organisation. We also welcome individuals wanting to do good. Some ideas:
1) Dementia Day Care
Support our team at Dementia Day Care in daily activities for our dementia clients.
2) Home Care Service
We provide transitional and continuity of nursing care to clients when they are discharged from the hospital, especially elderly who are homebound. Volunteer Opportunities are available for befrienders to homebound clients. Popping by to chat or have a simple meal together tells them that they do not age alone.
3) Helping needy households
Assist in food packing, food distribution, cleaning/painting of rental flats, be-friending lonely elderly, etc.
4) Charity Golf Tournament – Annual fundraising event
Sponsorship consideration or golfers to book flights to play for charity.
Volunteer to help at the events/PAR3 challenge.
5) Partnership in your events
The following are some ideas for such partnership:
Charity Car Wash
We are glad to collaborate with you to do a charity car wash in your premises with your colleagues or students and volunteers running the event together.
Charity Run/Walk cum Family Day
Partners can consider hosting this event as one of your ‘Family Day’ event with Yong-en as your beneficiary charity. Apart from fund-raising by the runners/walkers, we could set up booths selling craft made by our beneficiaries.
For Corporates/Institutions with talents, do consider showcasing these talents through a Charity Concert; with Yong-en as your beneficiary charity.
We are open to other ideas, and look forward to having a discussion to explore ways that we can customise programmes with your organisation.
