Volunteer Orientation held on 28 Aug @ NVPC

Dear all,
Yesterday, we had our first Volunteer Orientation at NVPC at The Giving Place ever since they have shifted from Amoy Street to this new cool building at Central @ Clarke Quay. Their shift took place somewhere in December 2007. on 7 July 08, PM Lee H L grace the occassion of the official opening of NVPC's new premises.

This new premises has been generously gifted to NVPC by Far East Organization, and a host of organisations and individuals have come forward to donate their time, expertise and resources to make this community-based giving hub a reality. The place is awesome, do check it out the next time you are near there, you may find books on volunteering there. =)

Well, this post is not only saying as to how the place is like but to thank those who have attended yesterday NVPC volunteer orientation. It's great to see people who are willing to learn a bit more about local volunteering scenes.

Also, a BiG THaNK you to those who have signed up for a visit to SILRA Home on this Saturday, 30 August, 2pm till 6pm. We will meet at Ang Mo Kio MRT station at 1.30pm before proceeding to SILRA. If you are also interested to join us on this Saturday, please drop us an email or join us at 80 Buangkok View, Buangkok Medical Park on every Saturday from 2.00pm till 6pm.

Photos from 7th Month Cele @ SILRA

Dear friends,

Its been a long time since we blog, if you have been waiting for this, guess you didn't wait in vain as this new post will leave you in awe (especially if you were not here for our 7th Month Celebration) For those who came, bet that you had a fun time @ SILRA during our 7th Month Celebration. We also had an Open House to volunteers from Brighthill Evergreen, Moral Home and not forgetting our in-laws: All Saints Home.

This Open House idea is to allow volunteers from different Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWOs) to feel and experience on how other volunteer groups are like..also hoping that can find things to improve on thru a 3rd party perceptive. Lastly, the key thing is to bring back what the volunteers think can be implemented into their activities.. if you still havn't catch me, you ain't know wat you are missing at..

Okay enough of that, let's us recap on 16 Aug - 7th Month Celebration..
