Singapore, 24 August 2016 - NEC Asia Pacific recently held its “NEC Make-a-Difference-Drive*” food donation drive from 4-15 July 2016, which saw employees generously donating food items to Food from the Heart (FFTH), a non-profit charity in Singapore. The food items were delivered on 4 August 2016 to FFTH.
NEC employees donated over 900 items, including rice, cooking oil, canned foods and other food items. As a sign of strong support for a good cause, volunteers consisting of 38 employees in 15 cars led by Mr. Lim Kok Quee, Managing Director and Deputy CEO (ASEAN Sub-Region) of NEC Asia Pacific, took the initiative to personally deliver the food to theFFTH warehouse.
More than 1,800 families registered with FFTH will benefit from the food items donated.
"As a charity that does not receive regular funding from the government, we rely solely on private donations and the help of volunteers to support our 25,000 beneficiaries. We are extremely grateful to have the continued support of NEC and we thank all their staff for their generosity and time,” said Mr. Anson Quek, Executive Director, Food from the Heart.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with FFTH again this year in organizing the food donation drive to give a helping hand to the community. It is a meaningful activity for our employees and we hope to continue and to make a difference in the lives of those that need it the most,” said Mr. Lim Kok Quee.
