Over 300 volunteers from nine corporate organisations came alongside beneficiaries during Community Chest Charity in the Park (CIP) in activities and inclusive games, such as Giant Jenga Challenge and Treasure Hunt stations. For Treasure Hunt, teams made up of corporate volunteers and beneficiaries completed tasks, such as using sign language for clues, to enable interaction and collaboration.CIP is one of Community Chest’s fundraising and engagement platforms that provides more opportunities between persons with and without disabilities to interact.
This is also an extension of the social media campaign, the Sign-It-Forward Challenge, aimed at raising awareness of persons with disabilities. The Challenge required one to sign the theme for CIP “Celebrate Abilities, Embrace Inclusiveness” and nominate their friends to do so.
The event is co-organised with Resorts World Sentosa as part of the integrated resort’s five-year pledge of S$5 million cash donation and in-kind support to Community Chest from 2014 to 2018. It seeks to build an inclusive and compassionate society, and is part of SG Cares, a national movement to involve and inspire more Singaporeans to help one another.
With your continued support, we hope to build a more caring and inclusive Singapore, by creating opportunities for meaningful interactions between persons with and without disabilities.
