Sharing the Christmas Love
Christmas is such a beautiful time to spread love, peace and joy. Here at E&S, Christmas has always been a special time for us to share and bless our underprivileged families in our midst. Each year, we work closely with our beneficiary groups to see how we can best bless those in our midst. In particular, we are excited to share that this year, we partnered with Foundation of Rotary Clubs Singapore Family Service Centre (FRCS FSC) to make Christmas a special one for three families:
1. Ms A and her two sons
Ms A and her two sons aged 4 and 2 years old are part of our monthly grocery donation run. We were especially delighted to learn that our single mother Ms A has started on a new journey as a wife, bringing along her two young sons aged 4 and 2 years old to build a new family. To celebrate her new season, as well as her new journey towards becoming a healthcare worker in Singapore, we have heard her request for an electronic watch and are glad to have gifted her one. We also shared two fun board games for her two sons so that the family can build fun times together in 2022.
2. Mdm L and Family
Mdm L and family are part of our monthly grocery donation run. With great joy, they are expecting a new baby girl in February 2022. With that, as well as a young 2 year old toddler in tow, Mdm L and family had shared items they need to welcome their newborn. We were thus, glad to share in their joy and to bless them with a new dual stroller that can accomodate both their new daughter and her 2 year old son. We also gifted the little fella a fun vehicle toy so he could enjoy a gift to himself before his new sister arrives.
3. Mdm S and Family
Mdm S, her husband and ten children were introduced to us sometime in December 2021 with hopes that they can be refreshed and connected as a family through a day of fun and games and a nice meal outside. With such a large family, plus the strain of the pandemic, it has been financial tough for the family to meet day to day needs, let alone to experience a family day out. We have thus, partnered with FRCS FSC and Playnation to bless them with a 4 hour play time + meal to have time to enjoy one another. They will be taking up this session sometime in early 2022 and we are super excited for them to have the best time together.
We could not have done this without you all. As you are aware, a portion of your orders go towards our social fund where we can make these acts of love possible. We also want to specially acknowledge Pregnancy Singapore for their contributions towards our Christmas gifts to these three families. We are always encouraged to see likeminded businesses giving their 1% towards the social needs in our midst.
We look forward to the beautiful year 2022 will bring as well as new projects and journeys we were embark on with you.
FYI: We chose not to share pictures of our gifts and of them as we understand the photography fatigue these families face as well as to respect their privacy requests.
