About The Campaign
Hi all, we are from Strongsilvers, an online community to help seniors with technological woes. With Singapore going into Heightened Measures, we are looking to raise S$10,000 to bring food delivery for over 2000 seniors supported by charities such as St Joseph’s Home and Irene Nursing Home, who may not know how to use food delivery apps & are facing financial difficulties.
We will be ordering from Hawkers listed in the Hawkers United 2020 Group, so that the seniors get the familiar taste and support the local hawker scene at the same time.
- St Joseph’s Home (36 Jurong West Street 24, Singapore 648141) – 196 beds
- Moonlight Home for the Aged and Handicapped (No. 134 Lorong J Telok Kurau, Singapore 425962) – 15 beds
- Moonlight Home for the Aged and Handicapped (No. 156 Yio Chu Kang Road, Singapore 545610) – 24 beds
- Irene Nursing Home (11 Jalan Ampas, Singapore 329514) – 57 beds
- Adventist Home for the Elders (195 Kim Keat Avenue, #01-294, Singapore 310195) – 26 beds
