Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently had the chance to attend Cheras LeisureMall’s Toy Bank, A Gift of Love community program, where shoppers’ active contribution had brighten up smiles of over 400 children from 12 children’s homes and charity houses through the spirit of giving in this season of warmth and joy.
With the active participation of shoppers, more than 2,000 gifts including household items were deposited into the Toy Bank located at Cheras LeisureMall’s ground floor throughout the program period which started from 5th to 28th December 2014. Participants had to pick a card from the wishing house, select the gift from a child’s wish list, include a message on the card and deposit these into the Toy Bank.
Apart from gifts prepared according to the children’s wish lists, shoppers also donated household necessity items such as rice, cooking oil, sugar, salt, oatmeal, biscuits, canned food, packet drinks, instant coffee, instant noodles, snacks, candies, tissues, mosquito repellent, toiletries and detergent.
The participating children’s homes and charity houses of this year’s Toy Bank, A Gift of Love program include Rumah Charis, Ti-Ratana Welfare Society, Rumah Keluarga Kami, Rumah Shalom, House of Joy, Rumah Juara, Rumah Sayangan, Desa Amal Jireh, Rumah Kanak-Kanak Angels, Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Cornerstone, Rumah Kebajikan Anbu Illam @ Karunai Illam and Pertubuhan Komuniti Penyayang Kapar (Caring Community Centre).
Over 200 children from the participating children’s homes have been invited to Cheras LeisureMall today for a fun-packed day with a series of interesting activities such as a movie treat of Penguins of Madagascar, scrumptious lunch and dance performances by Hyper Active dance crews and Denza Dance Academy. They were also eager to receive the presents gifted by the shoppers according to their wish list.
Ms Eva Hew, Assistant General Manager of Marketing and Promotion (Property Division), PPB Group Berhad said, “Toy Bank, A Gift of Love program has grown over the years and taken on a life of its own to become an anticipated event for shoppers, well-wishers and generous members of the public to express their concern for under-privileged children.”
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the donors for their generosity and assistance, with some of whom have been regular donors over the years to the Toy Bank, A Gift of Love program. The donors may be anonymous, but to the children, these Samaritans will always be remembered for bringing comfort, cheer and smiles into their lives. Above all of these, making their little dreams come true.”
“As a community shopping mall that is rooted at the Cheras neighborhood close to 20 years, Cheras LeisureMall continues its pledge to give back to the community that we operate in, and with society at large. Through the organization of community projects, we hope to develop a tight knitted relationship with the community and further encourage interaction and participation among our shoppers who have supported us all these years,” Eva Hew added.
