TWENTY children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary were given RM100 cash vouchers each to shop at Max Fashion in Avenue K, Kuala Lumpur for Christmas.

In tandem with the launch of “Avenue K Christmas Campaign 2019”, its senior manager Rachel Er also unveiled a Christmas Wishing Tree.

“The children will hang their Christmas wishes on the tree. We would like to invite everyone to fulfil their wishes.”

Er said the gifts could be dropped off at the information counter and would be delivered to the children before Christmas.

A donation of RM3,500 was also given to the home.

Caretaker Malarvilli Mathews expressed her gratitude to Avenue K. “This is the second time after eight years the children get to shop for Christmas.

“We have 50 children at the home, aged three to 12. Although not all of them are present, the children here will help their friends list their wishes too, ” she said.

Also present at the event was Tourism Malaysia Central Region deputy director Khairul Hilmi Abdul Manap.

Under Avenue K’s Christmas campaign, shoppers can also bring home giveaways and enjoy free gift wrapping service for a minimum spend.

There will also be live performances throughout the campaign by local artistes and comedians.
