This year, as part of our Share-a-Gift project, we have initiated 2 Car Flag-Offs to involve members of the public to assist us in making deliveries to our beneficiaries. This initiative intends to include the public in our operations and foster a stronger relationship between our project, our beneficiaries and our volunteers (from the public).
On both car flag-offs on 8 and 15 December 2012, approximately 450 cars arrived at the Kallang Coach Bay to participate in this event. Together with 2 Boys and 10 food hampers, each car receives a total of 5 delivery orders to deliver food hampers to 5 of our beneficiaries. Cars were dispatched from our holding area at the Coach Bay in waves to facilitate our administrative procedures. Officers, Boys and members of the public alike were united in our cause to bring joy and cheer to our beneficiaries in this season of giving.
This year, we are thankful for the following corporations for their support in our Car Flag-Off: Prudential, Changi Airports, ST Logistics, UFM 100.3, Volvo, Emerson and Borneo Motors. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the public, our Boys, primers and officers for their overwhelming support in this event. Together, we have delivered to over 1800 beneficiaries over the course of these two Car Flag-Offs.
