Tropicana Golf & Country Resort (TGCR), a subsidiary of Tropicana Corporation Bhd, prepared and delivered more than 6,500 fresh, hot meals to 28 homes for orphans, old folk and special needs individuals from Jan 16 to Feb 18.
The event was put together by Tropicana Foundation, a charity arm of Tropicana Group, in its aim to raise spirits, spread festive cheer and provide relief to underprivileged communities during the movement control order period.
Tropicana Group brought together its 50 divisions to raise funds and purchase canned food, sanitary products, essential supplies and other necessities for the homes.
Tropicana Corporation Bhd group managing director Dion Tan said, “MCO 2.0 is leaving a more dire impact on everyone, especially the underprivileged community. So it is important to unite and support them.
“During this period, Tropicana Foundation committee members work closely with the chefs at TGCR to plan, prepare and pack fresh, hot lunch and dinner every day, ” he said.
Meanwhile, at Tropicana Corporation Bhd headquarters, an internal fundraising drive was initiated to collect donations from employees across 50 divisions.
Cash contributions were collected to purchase food and supplies for the selected charity homes.
Employees were also encouraged to donate dry food items in a charity food drive, where canned goods, rice and other foodstuff were collected for the charities.
