YASC (Yanmar Asia) 5th Outdoor CSR Event: Helping out at Willing Hearts’ Kitchen
August 1, 2017 Yanmar Asia (S) Corporation Pte Ltd
On the early morning of 25th July 2017, YASC Foundation Day, YASC members gathered together at a non-affiliated charity organization wholly run by volunteers known as Willing Hearts, to carry out a CSR event. Willing Hearts operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 5,000 daily meals to over 40 locations island wide, 365 days a year.
60 YASC members had helped out in Willing Hearts’ kitchen through various activities such as cooking, packing of lunch boxes, cleaning, washing, delivery of food and general help. Despite the tough work required to prepare such a large amount of food, YASC members successfully assisted the kitchen from preparation to delivery of meals. YASC had also donated 50 bags (1,250 kg) of rice while some staff donated cash to Willing Hearts. It was a very fruitful morning as everyone had extended a helping hand and gave back to society. A day off was also provided to all participants as acknowledgement of their sincere commitment. This year’s YASC Foundation Day is also a fresh change from previous years as it is the first time Foundation Day is celebrated through volunteer and charitable work. This change serves as a great example on how YASC is able to cultivate a stronger CSR culture and better contribute back to society.
