The fourth edition of HomeTeamNS Gives Back, an annual event that rallies together members, guests and partners to give back to the community, was held on 4 February at HomeTeamNS Khatib.

HomeTeamNS built a 4m-high hamper that set a record for tallest hamper in the Singapore Book of Records. The hamper contained boxes of groceries such as Milo packets, toothbrushes and biscuits that were contributed by the participants. These were distributed to beneficiaries of Sunshine Welfare Action Mission (SWAMI Home), including residents of approximately 100 Yishun flats under the SWAMI Home Help Programme.

The HomeTeamNS benefactors and selected beneficiaries from SWAMI Home were treated to an afternoon of fun and activities such as Nagomi art, a purportedly therapeutic artform using pastel powder; a bingo game and Lo Hei, along with a lion dance performance.

SMALL ACTS OF KINDNESS, BIG DIFFERENCE

The event was graced by guest-of-honour Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development, and HomeTeamNS President.

“At HomeTeamNS, we believe in making a difference through community efforts. This way, small acts of kindness by each member get amplified and we can help others make a greater impact. I am truly heartened to see our members and partners readily chipping in. We hope that these gifts will bring our friends in SWAMI Home good cheer and joy this festive season,” said Ms Agnes Eu, Chief Executive of HomeTeamNS.
