RESIDENTS should not just be at the receiving end but do some giving as well.
This was exactly what the residents of Bukit Jelutong did recently.
The Bukit Jelutong Resident's Association presented books worth RM500 to the two schools in their neighbourhood and at the same time donated RM250 to three charity organisations located outside their neighbourhood.
“Helping the organisations is in line with our vision to reach out to those outside. Although it is a small amount, I hope it will put smiles on their faces,” said the Resident's Association president Ariffin Buranudeen.
The recipients were Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Jelutong, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bukit Jelutong, Shelter Home for Children in Petaling Jaya, Phileo Home in Kapar and Malaysian Chronic Patients Association in Kuala Lumpur.
Ariffin said it was part of the resident association’s vision to build a caring and sharing community of friends and neighbours in addition to living in a clean and green township.
It was also part of their vision to promote personal and community health and wellness.
Ariffin was speaking at the donation presentation ceremony at the neighbourhood’s Guthrie Hall recently.
