Buzzling with activity and excitement, the Jalan Kayu Day was a happy sight on a bright Sunday morning. Held on 10 September 2017 at the Hwi Yoh Community Centre, it saw a mix of residents enjoying the festivities, food, and games. They were also given goodie bags to bring home.
In its eighth year of collaboration with the Jalan Kayu constituency, MDIS sponsored $4,500 worth of NTUC shopping vouchers to 150 needy families. Another 3,000 recyclable MDIS bags went also sponsored to support the event.
Students from the MDIS Angel Heart Club and MDIS Dance Club set up a game booth and presented a dance performance on stage respectively. Both were well received by audiences. The game booth in particular proved to be extremely popular, with a continuous stream of participants vying to win MDIS sponsored prizes.
Presided by Guest-of-Honour, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the MDIS-Jalan Kayu Heartstrings Programme underscores MDIS’ efforts in being a caring and nurturing corporate citizen.
