UOB donates 1,000 care packs to help disadvantaged families to fend off COVID-19

United Overseas Bank (UOB) has teamed up with Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) and Pathlight School to provide UOB Heartbeat care packs to needy residents to help them protect against COVID-19.

Ms Lilian Chong, Executive Director, group strategic communications and brand, UOB, said, “Families in Singapore are doing their best to protect and to care for their loved ones during this protracted period of uncertainty. Knowing this, we wanted to help those who might not have the resources that others do to procure essentials such as surgical face masks and anti-bacterial gels which are in high demand. Working together with our partners and volunteers, we are giving care packs which include these products to support the members of our community and to keep the good going.” 

UOB employee volunteers sourced for and acquired 1,000 sets of essential items for the residents. Each UOB Heartbeat care pack comprises five surgical face masks, a bottle each of anti-bacterial handwash and hand sanitiser, and two bottles of Vitamin C pastilles. The care packs were put together by student volunteers from Pathlight School and will be distributed to needy residents in the Central Singapore District from 22 February.
