Bringing NDP2020 Celebrations to Nursing Homes and Community Hospitals
An ExtraSpaceCares initiative
Celebrating our nation’s 55th birthday this year has definitely been a unique affair as compared to the previous years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many large-scale celebrations and activities were no longer an option. To keep the spirit of National Day alive, Extra Space Asia Self Storage joined the national movement of bringing the celebrations to the various nursing homes and community hospitals.
In partnership with Singapore-based social enterprise ACE Seniors and Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), Extra Space Asia sponsored 650 care packs and specially prepared meals for our friends at Peacehaven Nursing Home and Lion’s Home for the Elders. Each care pack consisted of a variety of snacks and hygiene products. Together with volunteers from other organisations, a handful of Extra Space Asia staff came together to pack and deliver the items to the beneficiaries, ensuring that they were able to enjoy the festive vibes, at the comfort of their homes.
This year’s NDP theme – Together, A Stronger Singapore – also doubles as a rallying call to Singaporeans, to play our part to push forward and determine Singapore’s future. In spite of the difficulties, as a nation, we need to stay united, help one another, and emerge stronger than before.
Through this initiative, Extra Space Asia hopes to spread the festive joy to the beneficiaries in the nursing home and community hospital, as they celebrate Singapore’s 55th birthday.
Peacehaven Nursing Home is a home that offers a comprehensive gamut of services to care for the sick, frail and elderly who have physical or mental disabilities with minimal or no appropriate caregiver support at home. Lion’s Home for the Elders is a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO) that actively promotes and employs best practices in providing services and programmes for the ageing community.
From the Extra Space Asia Team, we would like to wish all Singaporeans a Happy National Day!
