We are so grateful for the CNY gifts that are pouring in! Massive distribution at Bidadari View Dr this morning! Thanks to all the amazing volunteers and donors🙏🏼🙏🏼. Taking excess from where it’s no longer needed and giving to where it is appreciated! Kindness and sustainability go hand in hand.😊 #itsrainingraincoats #sgcares #cityofgood
