The Boys’ Brigade Sharity Gift Box — Nov 28 to Dec 18, 2003

THE Boys’ Brigade Sharity Gift Box (BBSGB) is one of the longest-running national community service projects in Singapore advocating the spirit of caring and sharing among Singaporeans during the Christmas season. This year marks the 16th anniversary since its inception in 1988.

For the past 15 years, The Boys’ Brigade (BB) has been appealing to the public for gifts and food items on behalf of the beneficiaries from the Public Assistance Schemes and Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs). This project is unique as donors have to go beyond purely financial giving; they are challenged to make the extra effort to buy presents for the less fortunate in our community.

The BB needs the support of your church to bring a smile on the beneficiaries’ faces this Christmas.
How can your church help?

* Set up a gift collection point and dedicate a Sunday as a gift collection day for the BBSGB. Preferred items are: Rice, instant noodles, sugar, cooking oil, biscuits, cereal, canned food, milk powder, children and adult diapers.

* Fulfil Christmas wishes made by the less fortunate individuals and families.
* Deliver gifts to VWOs and beneficiaries.
* Provide publicity support by placing BBSGB publicity material on your church’s bulletin or notice board.
The BB Sharity Gift Main Box will be located between Orchard MRT Station and Wisma Atria. For other Gift Box locations, please log on to www.bbsgb.org.sg

You can also fulfil a wish at the following wish trees at: Allson Hotel Singapore, Manhattan House, Seiyu Junction 8, Seiyu Bugis Junction, Seletar Country Club and Singapore Recreation Club.

Have a Heart, Share a Gift. Call 1800-SHARITY (1800-742-7489) or log on to www.bbsgb.org.sg
