Let's Broom It Day 2019!
Let’s Broom It! This is a meaningful joint initiative held at COMNET Senior Activity Centre @ Punngol 206A, organised by @Housing Development Board (HDB) and @Singapore Pools, supported by generous sponsors and partners like @Nippon paint, @Ya Kun, @ Edgefiled Secondary School and many others.
This initiative sprouted from Project SPHERE, which represents “Students, Singapore Pools & HDB Enriching and Reaching our to the Elderly”. It aims to encourage inter-generational bonding between youth and the elderly residents living in nearby units through the idea of collaborative spring cleaning. This provides little pockets of time where the volunteers could chat and understand more about the lives of the seniors who went through a very different landscape, and a very different Singapore.
With this initiative, we hope that it would shine light on the stories of the seniors, how they are trying to integrate into our community and also a call for social action, to reach out to those who are less privileged.
