The Boys’ Brigade Share-a-Gift 2014 was officially launched on 20 November at the BBSG Main Collection Box, situated at Braddell Heights Community Hub. Gracing the opening ceremony as the Guest-of-Honour was Minister for Manpower, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin.
Mr Lui Chong Chee, Chairman of BBSG 2014, accompanied by the Welcome Party provided Minister Tan an insight into the project as they took a walk in the Main Box. It is designed with exhibition panels that showcase the history of BB and BBSH, as well as the project’s significant milestones. We believe that through the Main Box, the public will gain a deeper understanding of the project and will contribute towards this movement.

Minister Tan then proceeded to shop for items as he made his first donation to the donation box at FairPrice Xtra, nex Mall.
The opening ceremony ended with a reception where Minister Tan got to mingle with the guests including our poster girls, Kate, 6 and Beth, 3 who have been volunteering together with their parents for 3 years now.
We look forward to all the donations of food items that will be coming our way in the weeks ahead!
