Three shopping centres under the Sunway Malls came together to add cheer to StarMetro’s “Do Good – Grant A Wish” campaign for Christmas.

Sunway Putra Mall, Sunway Velocity Mall and Sunway Pyramid were the caring hosts to shelter home children residing at Destiny Starting Point, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai Selangor and Rumah SVP, respectively.

The malls sponsored Christmas outings, provided lunch treats, movie screenings and clothes to the children.

The Sunway Malls & Theme Parks chief executive officer HC Chan was present at the Sunway Putra Mall’s Christmas launch and greeted the children from Destiny Starting Point, Klang.

He said the mall supported projects that inspire people to remember the less fortunate and reach out to them.

Children from Destiny Starting Point, Klang, were sponsored clothes worth RM3,000 by Good2U at Sunway Putra Mall.

Sunway Mall’s chief operating officer Kevin Tan and general manager Phang Sau Lian were present at the event.

Some 50 children from the home were sponsored clothes by Good2U and also treated to a sumptuous meal as well as mouthwatering desserts from Swensen’s.

The children also took home goodie bags from Cold Storage.

They were also treated to popcorn and the movie Paddington 2, courtesy of TGV Cinemas.

Ten visually impaired children from Dialogue in the Dark also participated in the event.

The event was made livelier with the presence of 50 Miss Tourism International 2017 beauties who mingled with the children and helped them pick a gift each.

The Christmas cheer at Sunway Velocity Mall was equally merry for 40 children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai Selangor in Kajang.
