2012 – St Joseph's Home

Like every year, A21 embarked on their Charity Give-Back Program this year on the 28th of April 2012, at the St Joseph Home for the elderly.

Amidst the busy schedules, the A21 family got together on that fine Saturday morning, full of enthusiasm and energy looking forward to a fun filled day with the old folks from St Joseph's home.

The highlight of the day's event consisted of taking them to the Singapore Botanical Garden, which was out of their usual routine, to enjoy that beautiful sunny day. A total of 15 residents were taken on a special bus to the botanical garden, where 2 members from A21 were assigned to 1 elderly from the elders home especially since they are in wheelchairs. It not an easy task to push a wheelchair as most of us think it maybe, but we all did in good spirit and lots of laughter.

The day at the gardens ended with scrumptious food and drinks, and not forgetting the sing along session organized but our talented A21 Social Committee. "You got a Friend", "Anak", "Stand by me" were some of the song sections.

It was time to head back to St Joseph home after the very impressive vocals of "Oh Carol" by one of the elders, which I'm sure, brought back many wonderful memories for everyone and of course, how can one forget their beautiful smiles.

Back at St Joseph's Home, the kind and efficient care takers were not forgotten. A buffet lunch was organized by A21 as a token of appreciation and thanks to them for the services they provide in taking care of the old. A donation was presented by Benjamin to the St Joseph's home as a contribution to continuing service provided by the home.

Giving come from our hearts and on this day we witnessed both the young and the old come together to make this a special and memorable event, which will linger in our hearts forever.

A hearty thank you goes out to our dedicated social committee team in putting together all the necessary arrangements, to make this charity event a success & the to the rest of our A21 family members for their participation and assistance.

As we celebrate the end of our Give –Back Program for 2012, we definitely look forward and anticipate for the annual event in 2013.

 If life was as easy as a stroll in the park, then I am sure the residents at St Joseph’s Home would want all Saturdays to be like 16 March when we brought them to Gardens by the Bay.

This community immersion programme was planned some 6 month ago with the staff of Alliance 21 working hard to look for suitable places of interest that would not put too much strain on the residents who are wheel chair-bound.

It was nice to renew our acquaintance with some of these folks whom we took them out on an outing last year. A specially catered nyonya snack delighted everyone after a leisurely stroll through the Garden by the Bay. A magic show was also organized to add luster to the day, entertaining the children and even the adults with the intrigue of card tricks and balloon sculpting.

The care-givers at the Home were not forgotten too for their selfless contributions to helping the needy. A scrumptious tea-time buffet was catered at the Home.

The highlight culminated with our CEO, Benjamin presenting a cheque of $12,000 to Sister Maria as a donation from the Alliance 21 family to St Joseph’s Home.
