The Full Tummy Project is a charitable drive organised by Community Service Initiatives Volunteers (C.S.I.) to help Grace Community Services collect daily household items which they are falling short of at present.
Grace Community Services is a non-profit organisation that includes RUMAH K.I.D.S., Grace Center and Grace Home under its umbrella. The organisation serves to help rehabilitate homeless families and orphans.
The members of the organising committee behind the Full Tummy Project are doing community service as it allows them to grow as a positive and humble person. “This project allowed us to become more humbled as we have been fortunate to have lots of amenities,” said Siska Tan, School of Communication. Meanwhile, Chong Yi Siang, American Degree Program said “This provides an opportunity for us to give back to the community as even the smallest donation can make a difference in someone’s life.
The booth is located outside of the Student Life Centre from 8am to 5pm every Monday to Friday starting from the 6th of March till the 10th of March. Donors can pass the goods to the members manning the booth during the time frame.
Whilst donating goods you would also be able to enjoy exciting performances by the Taylor’s University Music Club, Taylor’s University Dance Club and Taylor’s Society of Performing Arts (SPART). In addition, you would be able to participate in a raffle draw to win some exciting prizes like Lumière ‘17 tickets and also food vouchers.
So do contribute in donating as even the smallest amount would make a significant difference to the people in need. As Nour Aldeen, School of Engineering and the project manager said “We are giving someone what they need which we have in our lives that is a daily necessity.”
