TO welcome the Year of the Tiger, MagnumCares is spreading positivity and kindness by giving aid to needy senior citizens and orphans.
The corporate social responsibility arm of Magnum is aiming to reach out to some 230 welfare homes nationwide with about RM730,000 worth of ang pow, sponsorship support and other meaningful festive gifts.
“We can never know the situation or the circumstances the needy are facing until we go on the ground and put ourselves in their shoes.
“We are committed to helping our fellow Malaysians in times of need,” said Magnum Selangor/East Coast regional operations manager Lim See Chin.
Recently, the MagnumCares team led by Lim visited the Mentakab and Temerloh old folk’s home in Pahang.
The team handed out goodies and RM30 ang pow to each of the 40 residents.
The team also went to Rumah Kebajikan Warga Emas Wanita Mulia in Triang to present a cheque of RM3,000.
Apart from contributions of ang pow and home necessities, Lim said MagnumCares had also undertaken home enhancement programmes for selected charities.
MagnumCares repaired and replaced faulty essential items as well as refurnished the welfare homes to ensure the residents get to enjoy a comfortable, safe and sustainable environment throughout the year.
Since 1985, the company has contributed over RM23mil worth of ang pow and goodies to more than 600,000 senior citizens and orphans in the country, he said.
He added that Magnum also built a therapy room for disabled children and learning areas to benefit the residents of welfare homes.
“Our motto is ‘For You, With You’. Together, we can champion the communities with great empathy, acceptance and love.
“We are hoping for a meaningful and moderate Chinese New Year celebration with fellow Malaysians and will continue to empower the needy with more sustainable and significant community programmes,” said Lim.
