In the spirit of Christmas, Innov8tif is giving back to society by donating to Sunway Student Volunteers (SSV) through their annual program, Shoebox Christmas. This program sheds light on social concerns faced by underprivileged communities amidst the pandemic.
The reusable shoe boxes which are often disposed of, containing gifts amounting to RM20, where the content of each gift may vary based on the children’s ages. The program was initiated with the aim of providing gifts to children from underprivileged communities. This year, there were 3 underprivileged communities, which are orang asli settlements, Persatuan Membantu Orang Kelainan Upaya Malaysia & Persatuan Rumah Kebajikan Hajah Kamariah.
“Innov8tif has always been a company that does a lot of community services, it is one of our ways to help those in need. We may not know how they are suffering, but we hope that with our small contribution we can bring joy to everyone that receives the shoe box, regardless of their age”, Joe Seah, COO of Innov8tif.
Almost 200 shoe boxes are given to children of different age groups at various locations, with distribution starting from 19th to 21st of December. Locations include “Persatuan Membantu Orang Kelainan Upaya Malaysia”, and Carey Island – settlements that accommodate orang asli families. Shoe boxes were also distributed to Persatuan Rumah Kebajikan Hajah Kamariah, a home for single mothers and orphans. We would like to thank Sunway Student Volunteers for organising this event.
