Volunteer Appreciation Day 2021
As the appointed SG Cares Volunteer Centre @ Ang Mo Kio, we were thrilled to organise our first-ever Volunteer Appreciation Day on Saturday to celebrate the passion, dedication and contributions of our volunteers!
With more than 100 volunteers, community partners and colleagues joining us virtually, it was a meaningful afternoon where we acknowledged our volunteers, rewarded their efforts and looked back on the Centre's journey across the year.
Our Chairman A/Prof Ang Seng Bin and CEO Dr Vincent Ng personally thanked our volunteers for the integral role they've played in empowering the community as well as the resilience and innovation they've displayed amid the challenges caused by Covid-19. To top it off, our beneficiaries and community partners - whom our volunteers work closely with - also expressed their gratitude through a touching video montage.
As we looked back on 2021, we had the pleasure of presenting our exemplary volunteers with special awards inspired by the unique traits of Pokemon characters. We also had a wonderful time hearing the inspiring and insightful reflections of our volunteers as they shared about their journey with us.
In particular, our Volunteer Manager Wah Meng shared the heartwarming story of Nancy, a steadfast volunteer of ours since 2015 who continued to serve the community with optimism and hope despite her health taking a downturn in recent years. What encouraged us the most was watching everyone shower Nancy with love and support, cheering her on for the journey ahead
As the event came to a close, our Senior Director for Strategy & Transformation Chung Pin announced the exciting news of AMKFSC Community Services being appointed as the SG Cares Volunteer Centre @ Punggol, starting from 2022.
With this appointment, we look forward to more opportunities to foster a spirit of volunteerism in both the Ang Mo Kio and Punggol community in years to come - not forgetting all our loyal volunteers and community partners who have been journeying with us since day one!
