Staff of the Helmi Talib Group packing food supplies.
17 members of the team came together on the 17th of August 2019 to participate in a Food Drive at the Food Bank Singapore – the Food Bank Singapore strives to bridge the gap in the market by collecting surplus food and providing it to organisations and people in need of food.
The team worked their biceps distributing food supplies provided by the Food Bank Singapore to members of the bank. Cans and cans of refreshing Nescafe and sinfully delicious Maggie Noodles went flying out the door, accompanied by the bright smiles of our volunteers.
Sharing with us first hand experience from that day, Linda, a Senior Accounts Associate on our team, found it to be “a humbling yet rewarding experience…seeing their faces light up with joy upon receiving the food bundles was priceless”.
The Helmi Talib Group is a proud supporter of the Food Bank and hosts two Food Bank Boxes within our offices to continually collect and donate dry food items from our team on an ongoing basis. As an organisation working towards bridging potential donors and members of the bank, the Food Bank relies on supporters hosting bank boxes as part of a Bank Box scheme and takes in ad hoc donations of food items that have a minimum shelf life of 4 weeks.
