Singapore, 9 September 2015 – NEC Asia Pacific recently held its “NEC Make-a-Difference-Drive*” food donation drive on 3-19 August 2015 whereby employees generously donated food items to Food From The Heart (FFTH), a registered non-profit organisation involving food distribution programme across Singapore. The food items were delivered on 31 August 2015 to FFTH.
The various food items donated include 360 packets of rice, 180 bottles of oil, 780 canned foods and 500 packs of instant noodles.
